Foreign Exchange Gain and Loss generated in 1 document...by SAP.

36 Views

I found a strange line item(Foreign Exchange loss line) after automatic clearing.

No.1: AP document

AP document Doc.Curr:USD LCurr:CNY Lcurr2:JPY Lcurr3:USD

Dr:AP 3000 -19500 -270270 -3000

Dr:Materil-1 1000 6500 90090 1000

Cr:Materil-2 2000 13000 180180 2000

No.2: Outgoing payment

Outgoing Payment Doc.Curr:USD LCurr:CNY Lcurr2:JPY Lcurr3:USD

Dr:AP 3000 19200 230784 3000

Cr:Bank -3000 -19200 -230784 -3000

No.3:Automatical Clearing

Auto. Clearing Doc.Curr:USD LCurr:CNY Lcurr2:JPY Lcurr3:USD

Dr:AP 0 300 39486 0

Dr:Exchange Loss 0 120 1443 0 <----


why this line generated?

Cr:Exchange Gain 0 -280 -27286 0

Cr:Exchange Gain 0 -140 -13643 0

Because the rate is different between AP document and Payment document.(No.1 and No.2)

I thought it should only have foreign Exchange gain, but after I did automatical clearing(t-code F.13)

I found the clearing document had a line item on Exchange loss in Document No.3(the second line).

Who know the reason?

Thanks a lot.
