3291604 - Migration of Balances of Bank Accounts Are Not Showing the Expected Currency


You are simulating the upload of the template of Balances of Bank Accounts, but the uploaded lines are not showing the expected currency.

For example, it is converting the USD and EUR account balances to GBP which you get as the affected company is GBP entity.

Also, in My Bank work center view, you have put the currency of the accounts as USD for USD account and EUR for EUR account.

Remark: In this case we will use as an example the currencies (USD, EUR, and GBP), but the same scenario can be used for other currencies too.
