Currency conversion is not working properly


Hello All,

I have query output values based on TRY (Turkish Lira) currency and our customer wants this values to be converted into USD. They want exchange rate type as MAVM ( monthly average). I have created variable and added to key figure in the query but values are not displayed correctly, there are some small differences and this small differences become huge difference when we check the subtotal of the related column.

My value is 336.00 TRY

After Coversion is

$ 186.7482

That mean is exchange rate is 336 / 186.7482 = 1,7992

But when i check TCURR table, rate is 1,7899

I am directly trying convert from TRY to USD and we have upgraded our system to BW 7.3 couple of months ago. As far as i heard, SAP firstly convert all currencies into EUR and then convert to the USD or whatever and in my case seems, SAP first convert to TRY to EUR and then convert EUR to USD. I tried this with exchange rates in TCURR table and values are exactly matched. Could anyone suggest me anything about direct conversion from TRY to USD without using EUR rate.
