Summary
Symptom

Reason and Prerequisites
From 1.1.2009 the exchange rates for Slovakia are published by European
Central Bank. Solution described in the note 1142262 is replaced by new
functionality for European Central Bank.
With program RFIMPNBS it is possible to import automatically new exchange
rates to the system. Before starting program RFIMPNBS it is required to
customize all necessary settings for exchange rates (Standard quotation for
exchange rates, Exchange rate type, Translation ratios for currency
translation).

data in XML format.
Selection parameters for program:
General data
o Date in Data Source (date published by ECB)
o Valid for Next Day (exchange rate published by ECB are valid from
next day)
In Slovakia it is required to use exchange rates on daily basis
with validity from next day (Date in data source + 1).
Example
ECB is publishing exchange rates for 2.2.2009. These exchange rates
will be uploaded to the system with date 3.2.2009.
o From currency (list of imported currencies)
o To currency (currency EUR)
o Variance in percent (permitted difference to previous exchange rate
as percentage)
o Test (flag for test run)
