Reproducing the Issue

Check the forwarded balance under transaction currency in app Trial Balance


The balance carry forward in foreign transaction currency is translated to the local (company code) currency and posted as the new transaction currency.

But in case the G/L account allows postings in foreign currency, that is it is not flagged as amounts managed in local currency only, the balance carry forward will use the currency in the balance transaction currency to post in balance transaction currency.

So for documents with transaction currency USD the balance transaction currency will be in USD (unless it is a clearing in other foreign currency than the original document to be cleared was posted with, in which case it will be the transaction currency of the cleared document in balance transaction currency).

The balance carry forward will then have the amount in transaction currency in AUD, the amount in company code currency in AUD but the amount in balance transaction currency in USD.


By displaying the corresponding amounts in balance transaction currency, please add field "Balance Transaction Currency" into to rows axis, and also add Measures Starting Balance in Balance Currency, Debit Balance in Balance Currency, Credit Balance in Balance Currency, Ending Balance in Balance Currency to display.

Then you will have the required information on the foreign currency.
