Click General ledger > Periodic > Foreign currency revaluation.

Use this form to use current exchange rates to update the ledger accounting currency value of balances and transactions that are in foreign currencies in main accounts.

The exchange rates of the system date are used in the revaluation. For profit and loss accounts (profit and loss, revenue, and expense accounts), foreign currency transactions that are posted in the specified range are revalued. For balance sheet accounts (balance sheet, asset, liability, and equity accounts), the balance amount at the end of the interval is revalued.

Each time that you run the foreign currency revaluation process, you can select to revalue profit and loss accounts, balance sheet accounts, or both. Legal entities that have significant amounts in foreign-currency balance sheet accounts sometimes revalue these accounts daily, using the appropriate, current exchange rate.

The foreign currency revaluation transactions that are created include the currency code that is being revalued and an amount that is expressed only in the accounting currency. Each foreign currency revaluation considers the earlier foreign currency revaluation transactions in the profit and loss accounts.

NoteNote

You can also revalue foreign currency transactions for customer and vendor accounts. For more information, see About foreign currency revaluations for open customer transactions and About foreign currency revaluations for open vendor transactions.
