Expected Result: Total planned cost should show converted value from EUR to USD.

Actual Result: Total Planned cost is showing in USD $1000

Cause


Upon reviewing found the Functional currency is still showing in USD in Cost Plan.

Navigated through "Budget Reference Rates" and no records found

 

Resolution


Budget reference rates are exchange rates between currencies. Each reference rate is valid for a specified time period. The application uses budget reference rates when budget items are in a different currency from the budget plan and forecast. 

The application automatically converts budget item currency values to a global system currency value when it calculates the Budget Amount on a Budget Plan, and when it shows values on budget forecasts.

Hence, created New "Budget Reference Rates" from Currency EUR to Currency USD.

Created new Cost Plan with currency EUR.

 

Result


Cost Plan submitted in EUR with 1000 and the result Planned Cost calculated value is 1,199.98 in USD.
