Define settings for ledger and currency types – T-code FINSC_LEDGER

Introduction of currency setting: We can use maximum 10 currencies types in Hana. First two currency type should always be sap predefined currency type and remaining 8 currency type can be sap predefined or user defined or mixed. First currency type is always company code currency and second currency type is controlling area currency and controlling area currency should always be sap predefined currency. Asset accounting supports sap predefined first three currencies only. User defined currencies values are not updated in BSEG table but updates in ACDOCA table.

It means that for same currency type for Y1 we can give currency symbol as RUB, AED, NPR, MYR based on company code and we can also maintain company code specific currency conversion. if this Company code Specific Conversion box is not ticked it means we need to give one specific currency symbol either RUB, AED, NPR, MYR for Y2 and Y3 and it is applicable for all the company codes. It is known as global level.

In our setting currency type Y1 is defined as company code specific and Y2 and Y3 as global currency type.
