The JPY currency does not have decimals places. Therefore in the SAP standard delivery of course this currency is in OY04 defined without decimals.

This is correct and from a business perspective totally fine.

Section 2  - Solution

If you nevertheless want to use decimals for this currency, there are two constellations now related to a change:

1. There is NO data posted so far with this currency.

In this case it's possible to change the decimals settings in the OY04. As the related currency is not used so far, a change of the decimals will not impact already posted data.

2. There is already data available with the currency

In this case it's not possible to change the decimals settings in OY04, you will have to request a conversion service from the SLO team, as not only the decimal settings have to be changed, but additionally all related amounts stored in the currency. Related to the conversion service, please refer to SAP note 434349.

It is important to note that changing decimal place for a currency in your productive system when postings were already done it is NOT recommended by SAP. Changing it will cause inconsistent data.
You can only do this within the framework of a conversion project SAP Consulting SLO (System Landscape Optimization).
