Verification of currency adjustment is need for the correct posting of accounting data. This enables user to review the currency adjustments before posting them. The authorized processor can approve/reject the posting. If rejected, can edit to adjust and submit again for approval. If approved, the currency adjustments are posted directly to the General Ledger.

In 2008 release there is an enhancement of verification workflow for 2 applications:

1.       In 2005 release, the scope of currency adjustment workflow only supported “Company Code”. From 2008 release it also supports – “Accounting document type”, “Cost center” and “G/L account group”.

2.       In 2005 release, the scope of journal entry workflow supported “Company code”, “Accounting document type”, “cost center” and “Threshold amount in company code currency” From 2008 release it also supports – “G/L account group”.
