Currency Translation for Consolidated Reporting

John Ellis

Last Modified: 2016-01-14

For Management Reporter 2012, I have been told that the one way of conducting Currency Translation for Consolidated Reporting is to have the Column Definition contain the company in the "Reporting Unit" field and the applicable currency in the "Currency Source" field.

The only concern that I have about this approach is that you could conceivably have dozens of columns, if you have many companies in GP each with multiple currencies.

Is there an alternative?

Thank you, so much!
