Exchange rate EURX not calculate exchange rates between USD and GBP

We have set ExRt as following:

Exrt Usage Ref. crcy


we have "EMU" flag checked also.

We are maintaining exchange rates (EURX) for EUR with all others currencies.

We expected that, if we have a CoCode set in GBP and we post a document in USD, SAP will calculate GBP <->USD from exchange rates EURX(USD/EUR) and EURX(GBP/EUR). It seems to be incorrect because the system is ignoring EURX exchange rates and using "M" GBP-USD exchange rate and this was not expected by us.

Could you please tell me if it is correct to expect SAP calculates USD-GBP Exchange rates from EURX(USD/GBP) Exrate or I am wrong and I need to maintain "M" exchange rates for USD-GBP.

Thanks in advance

Hi Rafael,

The system picks the default exchange rate type M even though you have maintained the rates for the exchange rate type EURX.

Please note that the system would continue to do so, unless you use a document type to which the EURX rate type is assigned. Also ensure that the conversion factors are maintained from GBP -> USD and back also.

Assign pts, if useful.
