Currency that is used as update currenccy for the summary data in the general ledger. The currency generally corresponds to the document currency or local currency .

A special feature can arise with clearing postings in third currency. The item currency of a clearing posting is always identical to the item currency of the posting to be cleared and therefore, can be different to the document currency and the local currency.


In a company code with local currency EUR, an invoice is posted in USD. Payment is in CHF. The clearing posting in the payment document has item currency key USD and is therefore different to the document currency CHF and local currency EUR.
