2932309 - Value date and exchange rate type used in Overhead Costing are unclear


If multiple currencies are involved in Overhead Costing calculation, it's not clear how the values are translated from one currency to the other currency.



Reproducing the Issue

Check Overhead Costing documents with multiple currencies involed.


The Value Date and Exchange Rate Type used in Overhead Costing follow the predefined logic in Cloud system. See more information in Resolution part.


1. Exchange Rate Type used in transactions is determined by the cost rate type selected. If plan price is used, system will choose Exchange Rate Type "P". If actual price is used, system will choose the Exchange Rate Type "M".

2. Value Date used for currency exchange is also determined by the cost rate type used. For plan price, the first date of the Fiscal Year is used. For Actual Price, the posting date is used.

3. For order confirmation, system will first translate the cost rate into the target currency, and then multiply the quantity. So rounding difference could happen.
