Change source currency settings in OB22



The currency setup of one of the company codes has USD as the 1st and 2nd currency and for the 2nd currency (Group), the source currency settings is "1" - Translation taking transaction currency as basis.

However all other company codes in the group have 2 -Translation taking first local currency as basis - Hence there is a request to align this comp code to "2".

This company code is set as productive and data has already been posted.We do have foreign exchange transactions and also do (F.05) forex revaluation at period end.We are on 4.7 EE.

I did read some SAP notes that suggest that this change should not be done mid year - we follow the calender year as fiscal year - and the next year starts before the closure of previous year

Please suggest what is the impact/side effects/ problems that we may encounter by making this change from "1" to "2" ?
