The following new functions are available from Release 4.0A in sales order processing. They help employees, who process sales orders, to respond to any requests made by business partners regarding currency questions, as quickly as possible.
To change the document currency in open orders (e.g. LIRE to EURO), proceed as follows:
To change the currency to the one in the customer master, go to Header --> Sales and choose Refresh. This is next to the Document curr. field.
Currencies should be converted to EUROs using an official fixed exchange rate. The system checks to see if this has been done in sales order processing. If you change the EURO exchange rate manually, the system issues an error message.
When you create a sales order with reference, you can
redetermine the currency. This is always necessary if the reference
document is not in the permitted currency.
For example: Your customer has changed their local currency (e.g. FFR into EUROs) but none of the reference documents (inquiries, quotations) have been created in the new currency.
In the copy controls for sales documents you can specify a condition for transferring data from the VBKD table (header and item) so that the document currency is taken from the customer master.
