Creating a currency

Dear all,

We need currency code BGN, Bulgarian Lev. This was formerly BGL.

So I created it through SM30 in table V_TCURC and updated tables TCURR and TCURF. So everything seems in place. Ctype EURX from BGN to EUR like for all currency. Translation is also maintained.

Now when posting a sales order it gives the following error:

Exchange rate of BGN in EUR for date 14.10.2010 could not be determined

Anybody has clue what's wrong?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: It also gives the following error:

Maintain conversion factors for BGN / EUR (currency type M)

Does this mean it tries to use currency type M which is not maintained? How can I make it use EURX?

    Hi,

    Usually for the sales orders and purchase orders, system will pick the M rate(Average rate). As far as FI documents are concerned, system still considers the M rate unless you have maintained any other exchange rate type in the document type in OBA7.

    So, necessarily we have to maintain the M rate in the system along with translation ratios in the system. You can maintain the exchange rates using transaction OBB8.

    Thanks

      This is true ( for the M-rate picked for FI documents), therefore you enter for the M rate in OBBS in the last column the alternative exchange rate type which is EURX.

    Hi,

    you probably haven't maintained the translation table. Have a look via OBBS.

    Regards

    Frank

    We have done this:

    EURX BGN EUR 26.11.2003 1 : 1

    M BGN EUR 01.01.1800 1 : 1 EURX

    M EUR BGL 28.11.2003 1 : 100 DMMY

    M BGL EUR 28.11.2003 100 : 1 DMMY

    EURX BGL EUR 26.11.2003 100 : 1

    M EUR BGN 27.11.2003 1 : 1 EURX
