Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Common Tasks view > New Journal Entry Voucher.
  3. Enter Company, and select Journal Entry Type 00084 - Manual Entry for Accounts Payable.
  4. Select Screen Variant 626 - Manual Write-Up/Write-Down Accounts Pay.
  5. Notice that Transaction Currency becomes read-only and an info message is displayed:

'Transaction currency has been changed to local currency'

The same behavior is observed for one more combination of Journal Entry Type and Screen Variant:

Journal Entry Type: 00085 - Manual Entry for Accounts Receivable

Screen Variant: 628 - Manual Write-Up/Write-Down Accounts Rec


The system behaves as designed. For the two combinations of Journal Entry Type and Screen Variant, the Transaction Currency defaults to Company Currency and cannot be edited.


As a workaround, the New Charge/Credit function can be used from Supplier Account Monitor or Customer Account Monitor, respectively.
