Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

You do not use time zone as UTC. For example, you use UTC+8 as your time zone. You create exchange rate vaild from 12/20/2018 10:00:00. You want to knwo how system saves the validity of the newly created exchange rate.

Cause

System will save it valid from 12/20/2018 10:00:00 UTC+8, which is 12/20/2018 02:00:00 UTC. Because the system time zone is UTC, and validity is converted to UTC when being saved.

Please always take your personal time zone into consideration when you exchange rate validity.
