Valuation Strategy for Activities

Former Member

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me where the valuation strategy used for activities is? I noticed that our valuation strategy is set to "1" and its using a planned exchange rate type with a really old date. Where is that field stored and how can I change it so that for actual activity postings through KB21N, I can have it changed to the current price and use the current exchange rate within exchange rate type M for the given posting period?

Thanks,

Pete

Any ideas?

Check the your valuation variant in the tcode OKKE and the settings for your version in OKEV.

Hi Elza,

I reviewed OKKE but I don't think that relates to my issue. I then went into OKEQ and changed the exhcange rate type to M and removed the value date within Settings for Each Fiscal Year. Now when I go to KB21N and review the Additional Info tab, I see that the exchange rate type is M but the value date defaults to the beginning of the month based on the posting/doc date entered into the Entry Data tab. Any idea why its defaulting to the beginning of the month rather than the doc or post date?

Thanks,

Pete

Dear Petter,

The field "value date" cannot be modified, in agreement with message in the customizing:

"Value Date for Currency Translation

The value date in planning determines which daily exchange rates apply for currency translation.

  • If you enter a date, the R/3 System uses the exchange rate for that day in all periods.

  • If you do not enter a value date, the system translates currency by period. The R/3 System determines an exchange rate based on the starting dates from each period, which includes potential exchange rate fluctuations in a fiscal year.

Note

This does not apply to accrual calculations or overheads in the plan. You enter the vale date in the transaction manually, by choosing Extras -> Value date."
