Care should be taken with test numbering so that the combined list is sensibly numbered. The combined results will all be linked to the end product when this option applies, not the phantom assemblies.

F0484 - Multi-currency Customer and Supplier ledger accounts

Date: 12 Mar 2012, version: 3.1017, rating: 50, platforms: All

Description: A change in calculating the running account foreign currency balances has been applied that makes it possible to mix currencies in an A/P or A/R account. Prior to this change any alien (neither local or account) currency values needed to be calculated into the account currency value for the running account balance using the current exchange rate of the alien currency transactions. Since the change the value of the alien currency value is converted backwards from the local currency balance. This ensures that such alien currency entries do not get out of step, in account currency terms, from the local currency balance. This also better maintains the Unallocated Credit total. This is particularly useful in the following example: Say you operate in Saudi Arabia where the local currency is SAR. You invariable sell your products to the oil industry pricing everything in USD and receiving payments into a USD bank. However, you buy much of your high value components in the UK in GBP or Europe in EUR. You therefore quite reasonably want to maintains supplier accounts in EUR or GBP because the invoices you receive are in those currencies. But you pay these suppliers from your USD bank and so you want that reflected on the account when viewing it. The new balance calculating method can handle this scenario.
