BPC 10 - Currency conversion data region

Hi experts,

I want to check the natural data region where BPC performs the currency conversion:

After run currency conversion from the consolidation monitor (both selecting an entity or a grup), the package write the converted dato from (1) Non_group / LC to (2) Non_group / EUR.

The group info is only visible when perform the consolidation. Then, it´s not possible to view the group info converted to report currency (EUR) before consolidation, it´s correct?

LC EUR NON_GROUP 10 (1) 20 (2) GROUP 1 - (3)

    Hi Constantin,

    As you correctly state, the first currency conversion will convert from NON_GROUP & LC to NON_GROUP & EUR (where EUR is an example for any reporting currency you might have in your system).

    The "translation" from NON_GROUP & EUR to GROUP & EUR is performed by another call of the currency conversion program. Usually this is done together with the consolidation, hence you will only see data after a consolidation has been run. But there is no reason why I cannot or should not be done separately or together with the initial currency conversion.

    The main difference is, that the NON_GROUP & LC to NON_GROUP & EUR conversion will convert all entities in your dimension whereas the NON_GROUP & EUR to GROUP & EUR conversion will look at your ownership data and only convert this entities, that are needed for the specific GROUP element. So as long as the ownership data is in the system, you can run both conversion together without a consolidation.

    I hope this helps,
