When, in the preceding year, the exchange rate differences have not been calculated, the program signals, in the new year, a difference in the opening balances. In order to resolve this problem, there are two possibilities:

If the preceding accounting year has not yet been audited, calculate the exchange rate differences in the preceding year,
  • Insert in the Exchange rate table, Exchange rate column, the official exchange rates at 31.12 
  • Activate, from the Account2 menu,  the Create transaction for exchange rate variation command.
  • Open the file for the new year and update the opening balances.
If the preceding year has already been closed and revised, you must proceed with an adjustment of the opening balances of the new year:
  • Open the file of the new year
  • Insert in the Assets or the Liabilities (Accounts table), according to the situation, a new account Unrecorded Exchange rate differences
  • In the Opening Currency column, insert the amount corresponding to the exchange rate difference.
  • At 01.01, the exchange rate difference account has to be put to zero by means of a transaction (Transactions table), using the account related to the exchange rate differences (Exchange rate profit/loss) of the profit/loss statement as its counterpart.
