exchange rate accounting (FI) in header of billing invoice


I have got a question about the exchange rate accounting (FI) in the header of the billing invoice.


When creating the billing document: on item level the exchange rate type B is correctly taken for the date of billing as determined in the customer master data and the copy control.

BUT what can I do to fix in the header of the billing invoice the exchange rate accounting M from the month of the sells document (usually they issue the sells document one month and the billing document a month later)??

I tried to put the correct exchange rate accounting in the sells document VBKD-KURRF, but the value is not taken automatically in the header of the billing document.

Pressing F1 I get the message: Exchange rate for FI postings

The exchange rate that the system applies when you create an invoice.


Your system is configured in such a way that it expects:

No prefix (leading sign) for direct rates

No prefix for indirect rates

Can anyone help please??

Thank you.
