Exchange Rate Differences function and when to use


The company I am asking about is based in the US, but also has offices and transactions in Canada. Does the Exchange Rate Differences function need to be run at month-end before finalizing the financials, in order to "re-value" the Canadian accounts, such as Accts Receivable, Accts Payable, Fixed Assets, etc. that may not have changed during the last month (no activity during the "current" month)? The financials are expressed in US Currency. Transactions during the month to the various Canadian accounts are "re-valued" at the time of the transaction entry, since the exchange rates are updated every day in the system. We need a clear-cut idea of when the Exchange Rate Differences function should be run.
