Exchange Rate Differences Problem on Execution Date

Hello experts,

My client have a problem in exchange rate difference, if they want to adjust receivables or payable account they only adjust for posting date not based on due date transaction. But in exchange rate differences only display receivable or payable account base on due date transaction not for posting date of the transaction.

Example :

AR Invoice transaction:

ar invoice posting date 02.07.2012

ar invoice due date 02.08.2012

Exchange Rate Differences

Execution Date 1-----> 02.07.2012

Execution Date 2-----> 02.08.2012

Result execution date 1 ----> data is not available.

Result execution date 2 ----> show the data, can process the differences

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

    HI Deasy Witono

    There are two different posting logics for balancing exchange rate differences. You can either use the standard posting logic or the alternative posting logic, depending on the requested time of the material valuation: Using the standard logic, the system valuates an external procurement with the exchange rate of the invoice receipt date. The alternative posting logic uses the exchange rate of the goods receipt date. This means that the system valuates identical business processes differently due to the different times of valuation.

    Hi Deasy,

    It makes sense that there is no revaluation at posting date, as the document is valued at the rate in the system for that date on entering it.

    The revaluation process calculates changes in value from that point onwards to the new rate you set, then, on closing the document, any changes are calculated and journalled in the system.
