ECCS/BCS Currency Translation Problem

Postby Joelfh » Mon Nov 19, 2007 10:17 am

Our company is a multi-national with a group currency of USD. We use many exchange rates to translate transactions and local currencies to USD for consolidation at the total Company level. Here is our problem with ECCS:

Sometimes, when we clear balances for a closed foreign entity, there is a residual currency translation amount left in group currency. This is because when we clear the balance at the local currency level, the group currency amount being cleared would be at the current exchange rate. This creates a situation after the posting where the local currency is zero, but the group currency has a remaining USD amount. For entities on SAP, we can post an ECCS manual entry to clear the residual group currency balance. Our local currency booking is forced to be zero. However and her is the issue :lol: This does not work for units not on SAP. For them, when I run the currency translation in the Data monitor, we are not able to clear those residual currency translation balances.

Anyone experiencing this issue with ECCS (or BCS)? Any sharing of how to solve this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It is better for the forum members/user to have the solution posted in the forum as opposed to private conversations. Please post the solution for those other who may benefit.
