2349917 - Exchange Rate Type Determination for SRM and CRM Documents


You have created a new Exchange Rate Type, Currency Conversion Profile for Create/Change/Delete Sales Order and made the assignment to the Set of Books.

Nevertheless, the system still considers the default exchange rate.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open any SRM or CRM document (CRM documents like Sales Order, Customer Invoice or SRM documents like Purchase order or Supplier invoice).
  2. Add an item with price in foreign currency.

You see that upon converting the amount to company currency, the system has used the default exchange rate rather than the custom one.


Although the fine-tune activity Exchange Rate Types allows the creation of custom types, the logic behind depends on the business process/business object to support this feature.

Currently, it is the designed system behavior that only Default Exchange Rate Type is used and applied in all SRM and CRM documents.


The system works as planned, hence the Default Exchange Rate Type is used.

The exchange rate can be seen and maintained as follows:

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Under Common Tasks, click Edit Exchange Rates.
