Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expenses Work Center.
  2. Go to the Common Tasks > New Expense Report on Behalf.
  3. Select an Employee, Type of Expense Report, Purpose and a Start Date.
  4. Click Next button.
  5. Add a new Expense.
  6. System is calculating the Exchange Rate as per the Default Exchange Rate Type.

You like to use another Currency Conversion Profile created in the Business Configuration Fine Tune Activity Currency Conversion Profiles.


System does not support a different Exchange Rate Type as the Default Exchange Rate Type for expense reporting. The Default Exchange Rate Type is always 001.


System behavior is correct.
