3140066 - Currency cannot be changed in "Post Manual Depreciation" and "Post Writeup" Apps


You want to post a manual depreciation or write-up in Apps Post Depreciation Manually and Post Writeup. Your system is set up in a way that in addition to the company code currency you are having another currency, e.g. functional currency. The system automatically defaults the functional currency for the amount fields. The currency field is grayed out which means you are not able to change it. However, you want to post the business transaction in company code currency.
