Updated: October 16, 2012

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

You can set up the calculation of exchange rates for journal lines. For cash and bank transactions, you can use either the daily exchange rate or an average exchange rate. For petty cash and bank journal lines, the calculation of the average exchange rate uses the summarized amounts of the accounting currency and the foreign currency before the specified transaction date.

  1. Click General ledger > Journals > General journal.

  2. Click New to create a journal.

  3. Click Lines to open the Journal voucher form.

  4. In the Account type field, select Bank, Petty cash, or Ledger.

  5. Click Functions > Exchange rate calculation to open the Exchange rate calculation form.

  6. In the From date field, select a transaction date to specify a period. Ledger transactions are included in the calculation of the average exchange rate if the transaction dates are on or after the date that you enter in this field, and before the transaction date of the journal line. If you leave this field blank, the calculation includes all ledger transactions for which the transaction dates are before the transaction date of the journal line.

  7. In the Calculation method field, select Average exchange rate.

  8. Click Select to open the Inquiry form. Then set up selection criteria for the lines to include in the exchange rate calculation. If you do not set up selection criteria in the Inquiry form, the calculation method that you selected is used for all lines in the current journal.

  9. Click OK to return to the Exchange rate calculation form.

  10. Click OK to close the form. The exchange rate calculation is used by slip journals and by general journals that have petty cash lines.
