Exchange rate EURX not calculate exchange rates between USD and GBP

We have set ExRt as following:

Exrt Usage Ref. crcy

EURX EMU EUR

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.
