1686557 - Unexpected exchange rate difference during goods receipt


Unexpected exchange rate differences occur when posting a goods receipt. This happens though none of the conditions described in note 381900 is met:

  • The exchange rate is fixed in the purchase order and deviates from the exchange rate for the posting date.
  • The goods receipt is posted after the invoice receipt. This means, that the quantity of goods received posted up to now is smaller than the previously calculated quantity.
  • In the case of a goods issue, for example, reversal or return delivery, the quantity to be posted is greater than the quantity still to be calculated. This ensures that exchange rate differences posted before during goods receipt are also  determined during reversal.

If the corresponding exchange rate difference account (KDM) hasn't been maintained in customizing OBYC, system will issue error M8147, "Account determination for entry KDM not possible".
