 realize that I did not write my response to the original question to<BR>bash 
any Strategic Partners.  I replied to make the customer aware that ,<BR>even 
though MAPICS does not want you to know about it, there are other<BR>solutions 
for products that may compete with what they offer.  EAX is one<BR>of<BR>those 
products.  I am sure if Dale at FFT had seen EAX before COM_Net, he<BR>may be 
praising their products as well.<BR><BR>But now that the door is open regarding 
Strategic Partners, just because<BR>their products are "certified", it does not 
mean that they may have the<BR>best<BR>solution to offer.  The affiliate is 
going to recommend a product that will<BR>give them the best bang for their 
buck (Commission).  It also does not mean<BR>that the Strategic Partner will be 
one forever (this is not the case with<BR>Lexel since the have many products).  
Just ask anyone who purchased MMA<BR>from<BR>Silvon, Wisdom or the MAPICS 
Portal to name a few.  Their companies were<BR>once Strategic Partners, their 
products were sold and eventually the<BR>partnership was broken.<BR><BR>For 
those customers expecting to see these other great 3rd party 
products<BR>at<BR>the upcoming conference - unless the vendor is a Certified 
Solution Partner<BR>($$) - you will not be privy to experience those products 
at the Tech expo.<BR><BR>Eric<BR><BR>P.S. I hope I did not open up any old

AM<BR>Subject: Re: IFM Financial Division Currency<BR><BR><BR>&gt; Kris, Please 
ignore my below mail as I have managed to run the ECCA tool<BR>&gt; for 
complete MAPICS i.e. IFM and all other MAPICS modules. The looping was<BR>&gt; 
due the base price file. I could trace out the cause of looping after I<BR>&gt; 
downloaded and the went through the source of EUROB14R.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt; 
However, I have once issue to ask you. In our IFM we have override<BR>&gt; 
exchange rate in all transactions except General Ledger Journal (GLJ),<BR>&gt; 
which is actually in SGD entry so there is no exchange rate (ARFZNB) 
and<BR>&gt; it is 1. When ECCA converts, it uses the override exchange rate 
to<BR>&gt; calculate euro amount, if there is no exchange rate override in 
the<BR>&gt; transaction, then it takes the current exchange rate. So for all 
GLJ<BR>&gt; transaction it uses the current exchange rate which, result in 
some<BR>&gt; difference. Our Finance wanted to use the historical exchange rate 
for GLJ<BR>&gt; transactions too. So, I wrote an RPG program to read the 
historical<BR>&gt; exchange rate from a user defined file and update override 
exchange rate<BR>&gt; (ARFZNB) and the flag to '1' (ARACWC)  in YAARREP and run 
the ECCA, but<BR>&gt; the result was the same. Could you please give some 
advise on this?<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt; Regards,

again,<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt; I managed to install and run the ECCA tool on our test 
environment. It was<BR>&gt; successful when I selected IFM only conversion, but 
when I run for all<BR>&gt; MAPICS modules, it went into a loop at the procedure 
called EUROB14R. When<BR>&gt; I checked the job log the error message '(E) 
Foreign Price already<BR>&gt; Exists'. We have COM installed and running. 
Please let me know if you have<BR>&gt; any idea of this error.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;

to take a look at the ECCA tool and/or its sources.  It was<BR>&gt; developed 
to do the local currency to EURO conversion in the European<BR>&gt; communtiy.  
Essentially it does exactly what you want to do: change the<BR>&gt; local 
currency amounts everywhere to something else (all the EUROFLAG<BR>&gt; 
juggling which it also does should not bother you too much).<BR>&gt; Consulting 
in a Euro participating country i've used ECCA about on 10<BR>&gt; 
sites<BR>&gt; and had good expierences with it.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt; I think it will 
cut down the task tremendously.  ECCA is free, but I<BR>&gt; believe<BR>&gt; 
sources needed to be purchased<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt; Kris De Vlieger<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;

&gt; Hello,<BR>&gt; &gt;<BR>&gt; &gt; We are in the thinking of changing our 
functional currency from<BR>&gt; Singapore<BR>&gt; &gt; $ to US $. I knew that 
it is going to be huge amount of work involved in<BR>&gt; &gt; each of the 
MAPICS modules where we have kept the amount in local<BR>&gt; &gt; currency. 
Financial division reporting currency also need to be changed<BR>&gt; 
to<BR>&gt; &gt; US$. Is there anyone from the MAPICS user group has performed 
such a<BR>&gt; &gt; project?. If so, please share your experience.<BR>&gt;
