Exchange rate used to convert between the <DS:GLOS.transaction currency>transaction currency and the local currency. The exchange rate is stored at line item level.


The exchange rate can be determined in the following ways:

  • You normally make no entry in the field. The system determines the exchange rate from the exchange rate defined in Customizing under Global Settings.
  • You enter the exchange rate yourself.
  • You enter both the local and foreign currency amount in the line item. The system determines the exchange rate.

The system identifies the exchange rate defined in the sytem from the posting date, provided no converison date was entered.

Supplementary Documentation - KURSF_KK 2300


During document entry, the system defaults the exchange rate specified (possible entries) in the line items.




Only users that enter documents for company codes using the same local currency can make an entry in the exchange rate field. This local currency must be defined in the user settings.
