How to derive the cost centre in the foreign currency valuation

0 Kudos

Hi all,

My client is activated with new gl and we use profit centre accounting for different unit. Now the problem is when we run the foreign currency valuation program, the requirement is that the foreign currency gain/loss should be posted cost centre wise.

Can it be possible?Please help me out. Useful answers will be awarded good forum points.

Hi Afroz,

You can assign the relevant cost center to the realized/ unrealized foreign exchange gain/ loss in transaction OKB9.

But if you are looking to see the cost center of the original items and classification of the postings to cost centers according to them, please note that linked cost center can not possible in FCV gain and loss a/c , Because in some cases there is no cost object exist in open item, only profit center is there.

Either Cost will flow to particular cost center which you defined on OKB9, or you have to enter manually while running batch input session. Here is a problem also, when you enter cost center, it will replace profit center also, because profit center has defined in that cost center master data, which you enter manually or specified in OKB9.

So both cost and profit will flow to particular one, Not as Linked as open item.
