Pl.check OSS note 789019/791997(for Romania)

Recently I worked on currency conversion for Ghana and we went ahead as per the abobe mentioned OSS notes.

In our case it was redenomination from 10000(old currency) to 1(new currency).

Also check with SAP.

Dear Ricardo,

If a currency is changing, normally a team within SAP will create a note which describes what has to be done.

For example, when the currency has changed in 'Turkey', the note 731961 has been created.

You should ask a local consultant or the colleagues from the 'localization' team about this change again.

But from the 'overall' point o view, the changes mentioned in the note 731961 should also take place in your case.

But as told before, the best would be to ask your local consultant or the loca team again, just to be sure.

If you need information about the 'currency translation' itself, you might also refer to the note 783877. This note might be helpful if issues should occur while you are doing the changes.

Best regards,
