Account currency

Good Day Community

Is there any way to change GL Account Currency back to Specific Foreign Current after updating to All Currencies?

In this case we have both Local and System currency set to the same local currency in Company Details and the Default set to All Currencies.

The user unfortunately updated three GL bank accounts from specific foreign (two USD and one EURO) to All Currencies. SAP manuals indicate that you can update from a specific foreign currency to All Currencies but not back again.

A single transaction was posted to the one previous USD account since the update but the other two accounts have not been posted to since the update to All Currencies.

The problem now is that the system will no longer display or keep the foreign curency balances for the three accounts even tough one can still process journals in foreign currency to those accounts.

We appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Best wishes

Dana

    Hi,

    Create new account with right properties and transfer balance account from old account to the new one. Then set inactive for the old.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Dana,

    Unfortunately the answer is NO. Once you switched the account to all currency, it can no long go back. This is a one way street.

    Thanks,

    Gordon
