Temporal Translation Difference on Opening balance
BCS Currency Translation offers functionality to calculate changes in opening balance due to exchange rate fluctuations.
I would like to report Exchange rate fluctuation on opening balance of fixed assets.
However, as it is mentioned in Sap help, this functionality is calculating temporal translation difference in each period taking the last period amount and fluctuation in exchange rate.
To illustrate this:
Opening balance as on 01/01/2008 LC 10 EUR @ 10 nok/eur GC 100 NOK
Addition in 31/01/2008 LC 5 EUR@ 15 nok/eur GC 75 NOK
Temp Trans diff at the end of first period of 2008 = 10 (15-10) = 50 NOK
28/02/2008 ER 20 NOK/EUR
Temp Tran Diff at the end of second period of 2008= 15 (20-15) = 75 NOK
Whereas temporal translation difference on opening balance of 10 EUR is 100 NOK (10* (20-10)).
Can someone please advise?
