Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Navigate to New Purchase Order in common tasks.
  3. Enter all necessary details (where supplier's currency is X and company's currency is Y).
  4. Select button check you will get the error.


No exchange rate maintained between currencies X and Y for Rate Type Z

and if Ship to address is different from company's address then Ship to country's currency is considered as currency Y as tax calculation is based on the Delivery address which in turn decides tax country. Thus this error is raised by the Tax Calculation .


To maintain the exchange rate between currencies X and Y for Rate Type Z follow the below steps:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select Implementation Projects.
  3. Open Activity List.
  4. Navigate to Fine Tuning.
  5. Search forActivity Tax on Goods and Services.
  6. Then select Currency Conversion Type.

Here you can see that for the country of company A whose currency is Y, exchange rate type has been maintained as Z.

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Select Edit Exchange Rates in common tasks.

Where you can see for rate Z there is no  entry against the currencies X and Y is maintained.

It is necessary to either maintain the desired exchange rate between currencies X and Y for rate type Z or change this setting and make the rate type as default instead of Z

Note: The Purchase orders created after maintaining the exchange rate only will consider the  changed/ newly created exchange rates automatically, however for the  already created purchase orders kindly do a dummy change  in the purchase order like mentioned below

  1. Remove the quantity on one line item and then click on check button
  2. Then Re-enter the same quantity and then click on check button again ( no error occurs)
  3. Finally click on order button
