Currency drop down

Hello Gurus,

I have performed the transfer and roll up from ECC to PPM and I also have the USD amount matching up with USD from ECC. But when I set currency to respective local currency using "Currency" drop down on Financial planning screens the local currency from ECC is not matching up when I select the same currency from drop down.

1. How does this currency conversion work within PPM?

2. Can you please let me know where I can define things like exchange rates, or any other settings to ensure the currency drop down works well. I am familiar with OB08 and it is already maintained.

    I suppose you are using PPM5.0.

    Currency handling is made better in this release. Financial data is stored in both COA (controlling area) and object currencies in PPM, as available in ECC. No currency translation takes place during transfer, if PPM Item currency is one of above two currencies.

    If PPM Item currency is different, translation takes place based on COA currency.

    thx, Mathavan

      Hi Mathavan,

      Could you confirm me that in PPM 5.0 financial informatio is stored in 2 currencies ( item currency and COA) currency?

      I have implementing PPM and financial information is only uploaded in the iten currency( that it is different from COA cur).

    You can define in PPM config that what are all the different currencies you want see in drop down. I may be wrong but as such there is no object and controlling area currency thing in PPM. The data uploaded from ERP system appears at item level as per the item currency (OR bucket if not changed at item level).

    The conversion happens as per the type of exchange rate defines in PPM global settings e.g for 0007 area 0001 as M. Also the settings you have done in ERP system under Integration with Other Components -> SAP Portfolio and Project Management -> Portfolio Management

    You need to define currency exchange rates in OB08 as usual.

    While converting the financial planning data in PPM its always refers the exchange rate on 1st day of each period.
