Kris,

Thanks for your advise. We are just in the evaluation stage, but to my 
opinion ECCA can tremendously reduce our work load on local currency 
conversion. I have run the tool few times and the high level testing of 
before and after conversion data looks to be good. If we use the tool, we 
will use as it is the way it is working and then work out the impacts due 
to fixed exchange rate. Thanks

Selva

Fw: IFM Financial Division Currency(2)






PS: It is normal standard ECCA works with a fixed rate.  This is how the
EURO conversion is done (by law, not by programmers)
I mentioned ECCA as a starting point for your problem, don't expect it to 
be
the whole solution.
