  7. In the Offset account field, enter the offset account for the transaction.

  8. Click the General tab, and then in the Date field, enter the posting date.

  9. In the Currency field, enter the currency code.

  10. Click Functions > Settlement to settle the payment and the invoice. For more information, see Settle open transactions - customer (form) and Settle open transactions - vendor (form).

  11. Click Post > Post to post the transaction.

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


    Click Accounts payable > Periodic > Foreign currency revaluation.

  2. Click Foreign currency revaluation.

  3. In the Method field, select the method of the exchange rate adjustment.

  4. In the Considered date field, enter the date on which the transaction is adjusted and posted.

  5. In the Date of rate field, enter the date of the foreign currency revaluation.

  6. In the Use posting profile from field, select the profile that is used for exchange rate adjustments.

  7. Enter values in the other fields, if required.

  8. Select the Print check box to print a report that displays the balances before and after the foreign currency revaluation. This printout also shows the summary of all charges by currency.
