    Please check/correct the following and see if this solves your problem:

    - NW is case-sensitive in most places, you please check that you are referencing the dimensions/apps correctly

    - In your system constants you are defining RateEntity but your dimension is R_Entity. Please make sure these are matching

    - In your logic, you must have the "Other" section in square brackets as so (these are not sq brackets because this blog turns them into a URL): OTHER={ENTITY=%ENTITY_SET%}

    - Check that in RPTCURRENCY dim that LC is labelled as L and EUR is labelled as R

    - Have you ensured that you have put FX rates in the Rate app in the correct period/group as your entered data?

    - In the Datasrc dim, have you entered a Y in the property "Is_Converted" for the Datasrc you have entered data into?

    - Do the accounts that you have entered data against have a valid value entered against property "RateType"? This must then be reference in your FX business rule

    If none of these things solve your problem, please show me what you have put in your FX business rule - as this definition was missing from your post.

    • Dear Tom,

      Thanks ! for your reply. Its my mistake that I had mentioned LC to LC it is LC to Reporting currency .

      I had entered the values againt all reporting currencies but still after running stand datamanager package in formula log values are zero.

      Few thing is not clear to me :

      What setting we need to do to system to identify WHAT ALL LC need to be translated to WHAT Reporting Currency ?

      Is system understands using Entity Hierarchy ?

      Is system translate all LC data to all Reporting Currency for all accounts were ratetype property is defined assuming business rules are perfectly configured?

      Thanks ! in advance
