Erro when creating Accounting Document for Chile - An exchange rate type is

Hi Gurus

I need a help.

I am trying to configure a pricing for Chile. In fact, it should be a very simple pricing, but I am facing problems with accounting determination. When I try to include the condition MWST (IVA), the system does not create the accounting document and returns the following error message no. FF802:

"An exchange rate type is not defined for country CL"

An example of my pricing:

CnTy Name Amount Crcy

ZPR0 Price 50,00 USD 50,00 USD

ZTOT Price 0,00 USD 100,00 USD

100,00 USD 1 AU 100,00 USD

MWST Output Tax 22,000 % 22,00 USD

122,00 USD 1 AU 122,00 USD

ZWST Price 100,000- % 22,00- USD

100,00 USD 1 AU 100,00 USD

Our implementation is a new one and I don´t know if it could be any missing configuration in another module, like FI for example.

Please, any information will be helpful, because I am trying to solve this problem for three days already.

    I guess in your case the company code currency is CLP and the price that you sell your goods is in USD. The exchange rate between USD and CLP is not maintained. You can ask your FI team to check the settings in OB08. Another possibility is that your plant may be in Chile (plant abroad concept).

    Can you give further details for this? Nonetheless FI should define an exchange rate between USD and CLP.

    • Hi Indranil

      I finally found the problem. I talked to the FI Consultant and we realised that in the transaction OY01, he had forgotten to fulfill the field "Exch.rate type" (T005-KURST).

      OY01 = IMG -> SAP Netweaver -> General Settings -> Set Countries -> Define Countries in mySap Systems

      We also verified the transaction OB08, but it had already been fulfilled.
