(Doc ID 2414466.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM)

Symptoms

On ALM 8.0.2.0.33 Results Consolidation is not working when From Date = To Date for Validated Exchange Rates.

The same works as expected if EFFECTIVE_FROM_DATE < EFFECTIVE_TO_DATE or if EFFECTIVE_TO_DATE is null.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect the same behavior for daily loaded exchange rates.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Insert test records as of 07.02.2018 and 05.03.2018 as the ones attached in the file called “Test_Data.xlsx”
2. Create assumptions and ALM process as shown in the files included in “Assumptions.rar”
3. Define exchange rates for USD/TRY for Effective Dates up to 05.03.2018 as in the attached file called “Exchange_Rates_Hist.xlsx”
4. Validate the exchange rates check the attached file called “Exchange_Rates_Validated.xlsx”
5. Run the process as of 05.03.2018
6. Check the results; as we can see in the attached file called “Results_correct.xlsx” the amounts are consolidated
Also, check Exchange Rate Audit output (sheet “ER_Audit”). The forecasted exchange rates are included there.
7. Run the process as of 07.02.2018
8. Check the results; as we can see in the attached file called “Results_incorrect.xlsx” the amounts are not consolidated – they are same as the original currency output.
Note: there is an exception for Scenario 3 which has as forecast method “Direct Input”. For the “Flat” scenarios (1, 4, 5, 6) the amounts are not consolidated while for the “Structured Changed” scenario (2) there is a wrong amount appearing in the consolidated output.
Also, check Exchange Rate Audit output (sheet “ER_Audit”). For example, for the scenarios having “Flat” method the forecasted exchange rate is 1.
