Updated: February 4, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Before you can convert your legal entity’s currency, you must revert any foreign currency revaluation amounts for customer and vendor accounts, and close the previous fiscal years. You must also complete tasks that prepare the database for the conversion, and then make the required changes to the legal entity’s account that is undergoing the currency conversion.

If you performed foreign currency revaluations to revalue amounts with regard to the legal entity’s currency, you must revert the amounts to the original currency amounts before you change the currency for the legal entity. For more information, see Revalue foreign currency amounts for customers or vendors. To revert amounts to the original currency amounts, select Invoice date in the Method field for the revaluation.

  1. Click Accounts receivable > Periodic > Foreign currency revaluation.

  2. Click Foreign currency revaluation.

  3. In the Method field, select Invoice date.

  4. In the Considered date field, select the date to use for the currency conversion.

  5. Enter values in the other fields, as necessary.

  6. Click OK to revalue the foreign currency amounts for customers.

  10. In the Considered date field, select the date to use for the currency conversion.

  11. Enter values in the other fields, as necessary.

  12. Click OK to revalue the foreign currency amounts for vendors.

  1. Click Inventory management > Periodic > Closing and adjustment. Close the inventory the day before the opening date of the current fiscal year.

  5. Click General ledger > Periodic > Currency conversions > Check ledger transactions. Print the Check ledger transactions report to verify amounts before the conversion.

    Any errors are displayed on the report. If there are no errors, the report is blank.

    NoteNote

    If there are errors, you must correct the incorrect data before you continue the conversion.

  1. Click System administration > Setup > Licensing > License configuration. Verify that the Euro and Reporting currency configuration keys are selected under the Currency license code.

  2. Click General ledger > Setup > Currency > Currencies. Verify that there is a currency code for the legal entity’s new currency. If a new legal entity currency code does not exist, create one.

  3. Click General ledger > Setup > Chart of accounts > Chart of accounts. Select the chart of accounts, and then click Edit on the Main accounts FastTab. Verify that main accounts that have the following posting types have been created:

    • Accounting currency conversion gain

    • Accounting currency conversion loss

    If the main accounts do not exist, create them.

  4. Click General ledger > Setup > Posting > Accounts for automatic transactions. Verify that main accounts are assigned to the following posting types:

    • Accounting currency conversion gain

    • Accounting currency conversion loss

    • Penny difference in accounting currency

    • Penny difference in reporting currency

    • Year-end result

    If a posting type does not have a main account assigned to it, assign a main account.
