Question on intercompany SO/PO voucher postings

Posted on by 50

I have a question regarding Sales order postings and why the ledger contains 
postings in multiple currencies.  

I have 2 companies setup.  Company 1 has a currency of USD.  Company 2 has a 
currency of EUR.  

I perform the following steps:
1.	In company 2, I create a Sales order #176.  The Sales order currency is 
2.	MRP runs to create the Purchase order #140 (in company 2) with currency 
of USD.  This auto-creates the Sales order in company 1 with currency of USD. 

When I look at the voucher for the first sales order (#176), there are 
postings to ledger accounts in both EUR and USD.  I understand all of the USD 
postings…debit A/R; credit to Revenue.  What I don’t understand is why ledger 
entries were made in EUR.  I have a debit to sales order consumption and a 
credit to sales order issue.  Why does this happen?  What are the two entries 
for and what impact do they have on the GL balance?

Thank you for your help.
