Avoid Exchange Rate Difference Between GR and IR

Updated May 18, 2018

We are running a background update on PO header that over-writes the OB08 rates. The updates are changed every quarter with ruling exchange rates. If GR is done in one quarter at one rate e.g USD=R9 then in the next quarter the IR is done at that time the rate is USD=10. The difference in IR currently goes to Purchase Price Differences.
The business wants the IR to be at R9.00.

Is there not a SAP note that we can use to make sure that the GR rate and IR rate are the same. That the IR does not result in any differences.

Thanks in Advnace.

    If the fixed exchange rate indicator checkbox is turned on in the PO header, then both GR and IR will be valuated at the same rate.
