EDI Inbound Invoice : Currency handling

Active Contributor
0 Kudos

Hi ,

In our system we receive Invoices from Vendors via EDI. The process is working fine.

However today we came across a situation where PO currency was GBP, Idoc received with currency EUR and it got posted without any coversion/failure.

Just for sake of example, PO net value was 1000 GBP, for which we got IDOC with currency EUR and value 1030. Which got posted in system to create invoice with value 1030 GBP.

Does anyone know how SAP handles this currency mismatch, is there any config setting where in we can control this.

We would ideally like to stop this posting or want an automatic conversion of currecny based on rate maintained in system.


Processing code: INVL

In general in SAP this currency exchange rates are maintained in OB08(OBZero Eight) T.Code.

The customer will be assigned to a currency in the customer master.

The system will check with this currency with the pricing currency and picks up the correct value from the above mentioned table.

If you open the accounting document using FB03 T.Code and click on display currency,then the currency will be displayed in the original one.

And the value will be exchanged as the given currency from the exchange table.

In this billing document,you can copy the exchange rate same as order or as per the date you create the invoice etc..These changes can be maintained in VTFL(if delivery related billing)/VTFA(if order related billing) in the item details.The field is "PricingExchRate type".Press F4 and check for all the options available there.
