2706196 - How the Currency of Purchase Order that is Created From Purchase Request is Determined


You want to know how the currency of purchase order that is created from Purchase request is determined.


SAP Business ByDesign


Since Purchase request can have many items with different currencies,the Purchase request's header currency gets copied from Purchase request's 1st line item currency. That is whatever currency is maintained for 1st item the same will become Purchase request's header currency.


So when we create a Purchase Order (where only single currency is possible)from Purchase request items, the header currency of Purchase order is copied from header currency of Purchase Request.

Any change to above logic is not supported in the current release of SAP Business ByDesign.
