To perform the valuation you should enter an exchange rate for the end of the month. This valuation covers the following accounts and items: 1. Foreign currency balance sheet accounts – 2. Open items posted in foreign currency (Vendors and customers) You have the following options for the foreign currency valuation: a) You can carry out the valuation in local currency, (company code currency), b) You can valuate in parallel currency (for example, group currency). You can also use different valuation methods (for example, lowest value principle). The posting of valuation is done by a batch input session. It is recommended that you run each valuation separately, for e.g. you will create a separate batch input for customer open items, then another one for vendors and another one for GL. Scenario At every month end closing (where balance sheet and profit & loss account is reported monthly) you need to perform a foreign currency valuation for GL, customer and vendor open items. Requirements GL, Customer and Vendor Master, the accounting transactions posted in foreign currencies (different than company code currency). Configuration done for foreign currency valuation.
