Cause

This is a configuration issue - Missing table ECT_CONV_TABLE

Resolution

The solution for this is to navigate to Admin Tools > Compensation > Action All Plans > All plans >

Select the table ECT_CONV_TABLE

Click "Export" at the bottom of the table

You get a very simple CSV file returned, so open this in Excel and add the conversion rate.

You only need to add it for one way (so example MYR to INR, you don’t need to also add INR to MYR).

Save the changes and then use the Browse button on the Manage Currency Conversion Rates page to re-import the file and update the table.

 

**However If the customer does not have the Compensation module enabled, we can enable just the currency conversion table, without the customer having to purchase the Compensation module in full**

Select only the following in provisioning “”Compensation Management” and “Enable Compensation Admin 2.0”
