Journal Entry Posting in a Different Currency from the Subledger's Currency

John Ellis

In GP 2010, I have seen instances in one of our foreign GP companies that the sales invoice would post in US Dollars.  But, the resulting journal entry would post in British Pounds.

I did some testing in Fabrikam and created a sales transaction in Canadian Dollars.  Upon posting this transaction, the journal entry remained in Canadian Dollars.  I say "remained", because GP does not let you change the data within the "Currency ID" field.

So, how is it possible that--in our production environment--someone posted a journal entry in one currency even though the subledger's currency was different?

It seems that your currencies for Functional, Reporting and journal entries are mixing up.

Can you please check and let us know what Currency ID is attached to the Customer ID for the sales transaction?  Does the Journal Entry have an option to show Originating Currency?
I assume your functional currency is GP?
