Exchange Rate Type per Company Code

HI Experts,

In our system the conversion rates for EURX are maintained since there are several European companies working with the system.

Now we would like to use the same SAP-system for companies in China & Taiwan. In both countries there is an individual "official" exchange rate which does not equal the exchange rates stated from the German banks and thus fed into the system.

Is there any possibility to connect a company (code) with one particular exchange rate type? Since we are dealing with countries outside of the EU.

Thanks in Advance



Actually, OB22 would mean that you introduce a 2nd (and 3rd) local currency for the company code. Here you can indeed enter an exchange rate type. But introducing parallel currencies for a productive company code is not supported officially by SAP (at least there are no standard tools available).

Also, if you have a China company now, with (1st) local currency CNY, and all conversions are made with rate type EURX for the moment, and you do not want (or you are not allowed) to change this, then you have to create CNY also as a 2nd local currency and enter the exchange rate type of your choice ion OB22. But in this case, users will become crazy as they will have 2 different CNY amounts in each foreign currency document: the 1st LC CNY is converted with EURX, while the 2nd LC amount is converted with your local rate type. Foreign exchange rate differences in both CNY's occur at every single clearing. Is this really what you want to do? )
