Columns and views of the account card

In the Account card, there are three groups with of columns.  In the headers of the Debit, Credit and Balance columns, the initials of the respective coins are indicated.

  • Basic currency
    Indicated are the opening balance, the transactions, and the balance in basic currency.
  • Account currency
    The transactions in the Account currency are being indicated.
    When the accounts are in Basic currency, these values are identical to those of the Basic currency.
  • Currency2
    For every transaction, the amount in Currency2 is being indicated. The logic of for converting amounts depends on the account currency, see Converting to Currency 2 on the Multi-Currency File Properties page.
    For the account card the amounts of the transactions are converted with the following logic:
    •  For the opening or carry forward rows, the account balance is converted.
    • For the transactions
      • The Debit and Credit amounts in Currency 2 are converted.
      • The balance of the account in Currency 2 is calculated by adding the amounts in Currency 2 resulting from the conversions.
        It is possible that the final balance of the Currency 2 account is not equal to the balance of the currency account converted to Currency 2. See the Exchange rates issues page for possible rounding differences
    • Transaction currency
      It is not visible if it is not equal to the account currency or not in Basic currency. If an account is registered in a currency different from the account currency, but equal to Currency2, the amounts in Currency2 will not be the original ones, but those converted from the basic currency.
