Adding new currency to SAP R/3

Former Member

Hi,

All Experts.

I am adding to new currency RON to SAP R/3 all the DO's & DONT's given in system. I am stuck up at one point that is Define translation ratios for currency translation. The process in SAP Note is given like this....

Under the customizing point "Define translation ratios for currency translation" (Transaction OBBS), choose the menu point Selection criteria -- > By Contents.

In the pop-up, choose the fields "From currency" and "To currency". In the next pop-up, enter the field contents ROL for both the "From currency" and the "To currency" as well as the Oper. "OR". Press the button "Choose".

You should now have selected all ratios where either the "from" or the "to" currency is ROL. Now select all found entries using the menu point Edit -- > Selections -- > Select All.

Copy the currency pairs to new keys replacing ROL with RON. In most cases, you will also want to set the ratios to 1 to 1.

SAP Note way out is quite tedious and I am not getting it....

OR I want to try the same as NEW ENTRIES option. which one to opt. Can I go to simply for New Entries ? Will it hamper system ?

Expert guidance will be helpful on this.

Regards,

Sharvari Joshi.

Simply create new entries for the conversion between RON and remaining currencies which you are using in your group of companies.

Ratio from and Ratio to should be 1 : 1 for normal scenario.

Hi,

This table is client level so you have to maintain like below

RON to USD

RON to CAD

CAD to RON

USD to RON

You have added new currency to this table, so you need to maintain conversion for remaining currencies as well.

Hi,

Murali.

Thanks again for help & guidance !

One more question.

SAP Note it is saying that :-

The New Romanian Leu will have two decimal places. NO entry should be made under the customizing point "Set decimal places for currencies". (Transaction OY04). So, this is by default, do not make the entry by copying the old currency.

Means that I need to skip the step Set decimal places for currencies completely ! Further more if I mention the amount in RON system will consider the TWO decimal places automatically. Right ?

E.g. :- RON 100.00 Is it like this ?

Sharvari Joshi.

If you are adding new currencies, which do not have two decimal places,

you have to enter these currencies in the menu option 'Decimal places'.

So, no need to enter your currency here.

Simply you can skip this step.

Hi,

Murali.

You suggested these all combinations in system.

RON to USD

RON to CAD

CAD to RON

USD to RON

Exchange rate will caputer these combaination for respective currencies.

Now If I want to keep RON to INR OR INR to RON , Do I need to maintain translation ratios for this also ????

As per my understandings we are able maintain exchange rate on the basis of translation ratios or it is irrespective ?

otherwise system throws an error message.

Hi,

You can also do in the below way:-

(1) Go to SM30 > view V_TCURF

(2) Restrict Data Range by "Enter Conditions" and click on "Maintain" button

(3) Select "From Currency" Checkbox and press enter

(4) Give currency ROL and press enter

(5) Select all entries and click on copy button and change from ROL to RON

Then again:-

(1) Go to SM30 > view V_TCURF

(2) Restrict Data Range by "Enter Conditions" and click on "Maintain" button

(3) Select "To Currency" Checkbox and press enter

(4) Give currency ROL and press enter

(5) Select all entries and click on copy button and change from ROL to RON

This is just a way to reduce your workload and avoiding mistakes as a cpy from ROL to RON. You can maintain manually also by new entries if you wish.
