Dynamic translation of currencies


I wonder if someone has a solution-idea on my problem with dynamic conversion of currencies. This is my situation in a query (Material CHR, rest KFs):

Material A…Index(Amnt1/Amnt2)…Amnt1(CurrA)…Amnt2 (CurrB)

Material B…Index(Amnt1/Amnt2)…Amnt1(CurrB)…Amnt2 (CurrC)

On each row in the cube I have materialnumber and a couple of different amounts with separate currency InfoObjects. In the query - Before calculating the index (as amount1 / amount2) I would like to check if the currencies between the amount-KFs differ. If they do I’d like to convert from one till the other; for instance from CurrB to CurrC in the second row shown above. The currency type changes from row to row.

Suggestions on how to solve this problem? Most greatful for any help.

Best Regards

    It's not exactly what you want, but can't you convert to a fix currency in any case, and use this fixed currency to calculate an index.

    For your example:

    Convert CurrA and CurrB and CurrC always to currency C (for example in a hidden column). Use these two new values to calculate your index.

    Hoep it helps,
