System Initialization


During the system initialization stage of our client's B1 setup, the exchange type (located in Administration>System Initialization>General Settings>Display> Exchange type) was set to indirect.

Unfortunately for the client, input of invoices have been done using the direct method of entering exchange rates. This has thus resulted in the local currency value of transaction being computed as the FC value divided by exchange rate thereby resulting in the wrong values in the database in respect of local and system currencies which are all set to Ghana cedis.

I urgently need a fix to this problem before the client can continue data entry.

    Hi John,

    If you already posted transactions to the system, you have limited options now.

    1. Export all transactions before recreating a new db so that you can redo the initialization, then DTW all transaction into new db.

    2. Input all exchange rate backward to make sure the calculation is correct.

    This is one of irreversible options once transactions are posed.

    You can do as suggested by gordon,U can use copy express to import configurations.

    • Hi John,

      There is a Expert Empowerment Session on the Service Market Place regarding the irreversible checkboxes in the Business One.

      I will suggest you to go through the same so that you know beforehand the working and the impact of checking or unchecking the checkboxes.

      Hope the Expert Empowerment Session will be helpful to you.

      Kind Regards,
