Question Status


I have several years working with the SL2011 version.
Now, I am having a situation wich  I can't identify the cause.
I have a purchase order generated in foreign currency. The PO receipt is made in the currency specified on Purchase Order.
Looking at the AP module,  on the screen documents and settings (03.010.00) The VO Document was generated in the Base Currency.
I was traying  to replicate it on environment of tests without success
It is a unique case in a long time

If you are logged into a company the PO will be created in that company's base currency, you don't have an option to change that.

So then the Receipt is the only place that you can designate currency different from the company you are logged in as.

If you don't change the currency via the receipt screen(it won't allow you to), the VO document will be created based on the receipt currency if you opt to auto create for sure.

if it is not auto created, then you would have to chose the PO in the vouchers screen.

Do you have multiple companies that have different Base currencies?

Do you auto create the voucher from receipt?

Is it possible that someone changed the currency in Voucher and Adjustment screen by accident?

Thanks, Carolyn

On the 04.250.00 Screen, there is possible to change from base currency to other one.  This capability is used frecuently by the users.  The documented behavior is not normal. As you said, could be an accident, wich I can't reply.

I don´t have multiple companies and yes, the VO is created from the receipt.

I also cannot recreate this.  So, I would say that it was a user error.  If it happens again, you may want to have it investigated.  I could not find anything out there as far as a bug.

thank you
