How to set up exchange currency rate for sale/purchase?

on 4/4/13, 3:30 PM 3,673 views

Actually there is only one field for the exchange rate of a currency, but I need one for sale and another for purchase, then for sale invoices I want that the sale rate is taken, and for purchase invoices the purchase rate.

is there any configuration or module available for this?

maybe a weird question, but why do you want to use different rates? OpenERP has the option of giving a conversion rate at a time, and you can set different rates for different days if needed.

for the same reason exchange houses manage different rates for sale/purchase, for profit.

or because not every partner manage exactly the same exchange rate.

I would create two codes per currency

e.g NZDS for sales in NZD NZDP for purchases in NZD

When you create a pricelist you define which currency it uses, all all transactions from there will flow using standard functionality.

seems like a simple way to do it, ty
