Double currency conversion => rounding error

Hi, guys.

First time poster, long time reader.

I have a problem with postings to FI. Would appreciate any input.

When we issue the goods we have special postings of the goods cost to a special account, i.e. 'goods dispatched'. When we receive confirmation from the customer we bill him and the cost of goods is credited from the 'goods dispatched' to 'goods sold' - this is done according to national and company accounting standards. This is done thru the billing procedure which includes apart from the pricing itself also two conditions (shadow copies of VPRS) - one is positive, the other negative, so in terms of the overall billing sum the cancel each other out.

The problem is that the VPRS condition is calculated in company currency (RUB in our case) and it's amount is converted to the billing currency (USD or EUR). During billing this amount is converted to company currency (RUB) since postings are only allowed in that currency. Naturally this leads to rounding errors on a constant basis - 0.01 - 0.09 RUB usually.

Is there a way to avoid this issue? Either thru standard means or thru ABAP/User-exits?
