After the implementation of currency union in Europe, some transactions will be carried out using the Euro rather than country-specific currencies. To continue to support existing transaction processes, it will be necessary to change conditions from one currency to another, e.g. the Euro.
Three existing standard functions have been enhanced to support
You can use the the condition list to plan and monitor the conversion. You can also create your own condition lists in Customizing with the required selection criteria (e.g. currency).
You can use the condition index and the 'create conditions with reference' functions for carrying out changes to data.
New conditions are created for the conversion. You can have the
system propose the end of validity for existing conditions.
Purpose and procedure:
Select: Conditions - Selection via index - Create conditions
Select material/sales org./distribution channel, for example.
Enter a sales organization, select 'keep validity end' (this function has been created specifically for currency change - otherwise the proposal would be taken automatically from Customizing) and start selection
Select the conditions to be changed
Select Edit - Currency change
Define the individual change options:
The system issues a log of the changes made. The log gives you an overview of the old and the new condtions. If an error has occurred (red traffic light appears) the system issues an error analysis (select symbol next to the traffic light).
Select: Conditions - Prices - Customer-specific - Create with reference
Continue as described for the condition index.
Select: Conditions - Condition list (In Customizing for pricing, you can define your own selection requirements for your condition lists. (In currency conversion, it makes sense to use the new 'selection via currency' option for free accruals).
For technical reasons, it is not possible to select several periods for a condition record in the condition index or when creating conditions with reference. This is possible for the condition list, but mass data change is not possible here. After making a mass data change in the condition index, you should call up the condition list to list the periods that still need to be changed.
