How To Change The Base Currency
The base currency is also called home currency or local currency. When you start using the system and recording transactions in the system, you cannot change the base currency. However, if you delete all transactions, you are able to change the base currency. This lesson will show you the necessary steps that you need to take to change the base currency.
Change the Base Currency
- Make sure that you are signed in as 'Administrator' first. Then from the 'Support' menu in the menu bar select 'Edit Company Information'.
- From the 'Support' menu select 'Delete all Transactions'.
Rebuild The Currencies Table
- Now that you have changed your base currency go to the 'Currencies' Module in order to rebuild the currencies table.
- Select all the currencies by clicking on the first currency, holding down the '<Shift>' key and then clicking on the last currency.
This will highlight all the currencies. You can also delete the currencies one by one, but it will be more time consuming.
- Then click 'Delete'.
