Fixed rate for currency not fixed in the PO

Former Member

Hi,

In me21N, when we create an order for a different currency than the company currency, the defaut rate appears in the header. This is normal.

There is a possibility to fix the rate (the box to tick just next to the rate) : in this case, the same rate will apply in the invoice, even if defaut rate has been changed in the customizing

-> Can you confirm this ?

We have a case where a user, set a different rate than the default one (because of a negociation with the vendor) and tick on "fixed". The issue is that when the PO is saved or released, the default rate erase the one entered manually !

-> Is this the normal behaviour or a system error ?

-> Is there any standard way to not refresh a manual entry by the default one ?

Thank you,

Isabelle

Answer: Yes correct

Yes it is as per standard SAP practice

Do not put indicator in PO fixed, system will take exchange rate from OB08, which is to be maintained as per current exchange rate. there is no significant advantage in fixing exchage rate in PO.
