In SAP all currencies are maintained as per the ISO standard. SAP provides currencies for every country and it also provides a flexibility of defining our own currencies. When we define local currency and foreign currencies for a company code then the transaction methods and the exchange rates etc should have been configured in place to get that reflected in SAP FICO transactions. Below in this article we have provided steps and transaction codes on how to configure currency type in sap.
Here are the steps that are followed to carry out settings for currency type in SAP FICO:
