You manually changed purchase order currency under General tab, but system doesn't convert the price amount automatically even though the exchange rate already maintained.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase requests and orders work center, Purchase Orders view.
  2. Open purchase order ABC (ABC refers to the purchase order ID), the total amount is 100 USD.
  3. View all and go to General tab, change the currency from USD to EUR.

You expect the system will convert the amount to a new value automatically according to the exchange rate you maintained, but the value does not change and the total amount becomes 100 EUR.


This is the current system behavior. During update of puechase order, automatic currency conversion is not supported, only the currency unit changes will be reflected in header currency.


Please update the value manually also you may consider the below:
