R12: Is it Possible to Check the Tolerance in Foreign Currency Instead of the Functional Currency? (Doc ID 2572063.1)

Last updated on APRIL 20, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.6 version, Purchase Order

Tolerance Check on Foreign Currency:

Using "Enforce Price Tolerance Amount" is enabled and also encumbrance is enabled for Requisitions and Purchase Orders.

Base Currency is: XXX

1. Scenario: Created the Requisition for XXX 4188.8 and its foreign currency converted into US 1000 (Rate Type Corporate and Rate on this date is 4.1888)

2. Converted Req. to PO and created the PO in US (1000) as in Req.  However, Unable to submit the PO for approval due to tolerance enabled. (PO Converting after one week and the currency rate is updated)
    For Example : Req. Line Amount is US 1000 and in base currency 4188.8

  After Converting PO:
  PO Line Amount is US 1000, However, XXX is increasing as per the current rate,
  For example on that date the rate is coming from GL is 4.200 so its converting 1000*4.200 = 4200 XXX which is more than Req. Line Amount (4188.8 XXX) so its stopping the Submission of PO for approval.

Question 1: Is it Possible to Check the tolerance on foreign currency instead of base currency (XXX)?
Question 2: Is it Possible to Override the tolerance for a specific transaction (For example, POs) without disable tolerance option ?
