Want to know information about company code currency changes.
Our company code currency is SGD and now want to change to USD.
Our fiscal year is Jan-Dec and we are in SAP 5.0 version.
Can you let us know whether itu2019s possible to do the change?
If so, how and can we perform this activity in the middle of the year.
How to take care of the open items like PO,SO,Vendor ,Customer, which we have already posted in the system with our SGD currency.
And if not, do suggest and alternate/workaround.
Heard about, that this can be achieved with PARALLEL CURRENCY activation.
Not having much idea about Parallel Currency.
A change of the company code currency is possible. The change is only possible as at year end (the actual running of the programms can be done mid-year provided certain customising has been done prior to the first posting in that year).
All items will get changed from old local currency to new local currency.
You can read the documentation in Spro > Cross-Application Components > EMU > Local Currency Changeover.
This is a very complex procedure so be sure to read all the documentatin first.
Thanks for your reply.
As our company has been started from this fiscal year(2010) and have not more entries in the system at present.
Roughly we can say it will around 1000 entries.
Can you suggest the steps to be followed and pros and cons of currency change over(in the middle of the fiscal year).
That's fine Madhu,we do have that option already.
But what we looking is that whether we can achive the same with SAP stand.program.
We are also thinking about activating PARALLEL CURRENCY,but we dont have much idea on it.
So we are looking for your opinion on our issue.
