We have noticed the following for some time now:
i. When we are invoicing an item and make changes to the price of the item it does not convert to the local currency.
ii. The same thing happens when we make changes to the price of an item in an order record downloaded from YBP.
The conversion works normally when the original order record goes into the system.
Looking at the abc50 z82 (corresponding to the GUI Acq - Admin - Currency display), I see this:
abc50@ALEPH20> select Z82_DATE, z82_ratio from z82 where Z82_CURRENCY_NAME = 'GBP';
**** Hit return to continue ****
That is, a single date/ratio for each currency.
What I'm *used* to seeing is a series of dates/ratios for a currency, such as:
Do you use p_acq_20 to load/update your currency records? p_acq_20 preserves the old currency records so the system has a history of dates/ratios it can look at.
Or do you, perhaps, simply update the ratio in the GUI Acq - Admin - Currency? If so, you lose the history.
I suggest that you start using p_acq_20 to update your currencies.
