CK40N released as standard price, the exchange rate of Hard currency not as expected??
We used CK40N to run the “costing run” and released as standard price, every step works fine but the exchange rate of “hard currency” is not as we expected, we expected the exchange rate should be M rate of the period of “Costing Run Date” but it was the previous period.
CK40N: Costing Date From date / Valuation Date is 1st Oct 2015.
We expected the exchange rate of Hard currency (USD) should be “M” rate of 1st Oct 2015, but in MM03 the exchange rate of Hard currency is 1st Sep. 2015.
And we also checked the CK13N, all of the source price from info record were converted correctly ( exchange rate 1st Oct 2015), only the released exchange rate is not the same??!!
Is this the standard system behavior or anything we have to set up??
Thanks for any reply.

in standard costing (legal valuation view) you have prices in company code currency and (if the CCS in CO area currency is stored) also in CO area currency.
When marking is done system writes the calculated prices into all currencies of this valuation view
in material master. If your hard currency USD is different to the two currencies in the cost estimate then system will do a currency conversion based on settings in FI and the current date (date of marking).
