2768911 - Transaction Amount wrong in Cash Position - Transaction Details Report


  • You manually change the exchange rate when posting a bank-to-bank transfer AAA(AAA represents the payment ID).
  • For example, you transfer 250.00 USD (200.00 EUR) from a USD bank account to EUR bank account with user defined exchange rate of 0.8. However, the default system exchange rate, as maintained in the General Ledger,  is 0.9.
  • When you check payment AAA in the 'Cash Position - Transaction Details' report, you notice that the Transaction Amount is not 200.00 EUR, but 225.00 EUR.

Reproducing the Issue

To check the amounts in the Payment Monitor view:

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the Payment Monitor view.
  3. Show All Payments and search AAA.
  4. You can see:
  • Incoming Bank Transfer, Document ID AAA, EUR bank account.
  • Payment Amount in Transaction Currency: 250.00 USD; Payment Amount in Cash Location Currency: 200.00 EUR.

To check the amounts in the 'Cash Position - Transaction Details' report:

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the Reports -List view.
  3. Open the Cash Position - Transaction Details report.
  4. Enter EUR as Display Currency, In the Display Currency - Conversion Date enter the posting date of Payment AAA.
  5. Enter all other required parameters and then press Apply.
  6. You can see:
  •         EUR bank account, Intra-/Intercompany Bank Transfer AAA, Transaction Amount 225.00 EUR.


The 'Cash Position - Transaction Details' report considers the transaction currency as the source currency and the Display Currency as target currency for the exchange rate calculation (for example:  250.00 USD * 0.9 (system exchange rate)) . This report is not intended to show cash position transaction currency with user defined exchange rate bank-to-bank transfers.


This is expected system behavior.
