3112413 - Foreign Currency Valuation does not calculate values

Symptom

Foreign Currency Valuation does not calculate values where pairing values are added to reference currency.

Environment

S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Maintain currency pairs in Currency Exchange Rates App - eg. PLN/GBP and USD/GBP
  2. Run App Foreign Currency Valuation
  3. Currency combination values (eg. PLN/USD) are not calculated although both are added to the refence currency.

Cause

Translation ratio is not maintained in SSCUI 102568 "Define Translation Ratios for Currency Translation"

Resolution

To get the currency conversion running you need to add a translation ratio from USD to PLN to your configuration. The conversion uses the reference currency GBP for calculating the exchange rates therefore no direct rate is needed, but it needs this ratio for the currency combination used.

You can maintain this in SSCUI 102568 "Define Translation Ratios for Currency Translation"

The message log of the Foreign Currency Valuation report should show error SG111 to indicate the missing Ratio.

To see whether a conversion works you can also click the button 'Currency Converter' shown on the top right of the Currency Exchange Rate app.
