Difference Between Amount in Doc Curr. and Amount in Second Local Curr.

Dear Moderators:

When we did GR, system will generate one FI document authomatically, I got a question about the amount in FI document, the background is:

Document currency is EUR

Local currency is CNY

The maintained exchange rate in system is 1 EUR = 10.052 CNY;

After done GR, got the PPV item line of FI document as follows: e.g.

PPV G/L account Amount in doc. curr. Amount in local. curr. Amount in second curr.

PPV 840 8,378.55 833.50

The quotient of dividing 8,378.55 by 833.50 is the maintained exchange rate in SAP system.

My question is why the amound in doc. curr. is not equal to the amount in second curr.? What exchange rate does the system use to calculate the amount in doc. curr.?

I'm highly appreciated that you can help me to solve my confused question! Thanks in advance.

Best regards

An exchange rate can be entered while entering your document.

Another option is you can define an exchange rate in the document type. Go to OBA7 and know whether any exchange rate type is already defined in the document type.

By default, the system would pick up exchange rate type 'M' from the tables for conversion if no other specific type is mentioned.
