·         Spot: An exchange rate you enter to perform conversion based on the rate on a specific date. It applies to the immediate delivery of a currency.
·         User: An exchange rate you specify when you enter a foreign currency journal entry that does not have a daily exchange rate.

·         Concurrent processing: When the concurrent process runs, you retain control so you can continue working in the system windows. Displays the concurrent request number of the concurrent process that is running the inter-organization transfer transactions.
