2237123 - Company Currency is not Shown in Journal Entry Voucher


You are trying to post the Journal Entry Voucher with Currency ABC and you realize after posting that Company Currency filed is blank.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Journal Entry Voucher View.
  3. Search with Journal Entry Voucher: 123.

You can see only transactional currency but not the amount converted into company currency. Company Currency is displaying blank.


In journal entry voucher, you can see your entered data only. The journal entry voucher will not show the currency conversion. If you provide a transaction currency and exchange rate to company currency, you'll only the conversion in the resulting journal entry.


System behavior is as designed.

Each business transaction is entered in the source document in the transaction currency. If the transaction differs from the local currency, the system subsequently converts the business transaction amount for the journal entry into the local currency.
Hence, company currency reflects in the journal entries based on exchange rates and you can also see it in the G/L line item reports.
