If your legal entity issues invoices in foreign currencies, you must convert the foreign currency into the local currency, based on the current exchange rate. You can use this form to import exchange rates from the exchange rate providers.

Before you can import exchange rates, you must add the information that is required by the exchange rate providers.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.



Exchange rate type

Select an exchange rate type.

Exchange rate provider

Select an exchange rate provider.

Import as of

Select whether to import as of today’s date or for a date range. If you want to use a date range, enter or select starting and ending dates.

Create necessary currency pairs

Select this check box to automatically create currency pairs, if the currency pairs that you are importing do not exist.

This option might not be available for some providers.

Override existing exchange rates

Select this check box to update an existing exchange rate for a currency pair when the exchange rate for a specific date already exists. If you do not select this check box, the exchange rate for the specific dates is not imported if another exchange rate already exists.
