Incompatible exchange rates from previous versions

When the basic currency is entered as the reference currency, the exchange rates with a multiplier greater than 1 can present calculation differences between Banana 9 and the previous versions. In these rare cases, while opening an accounting file of a previous version, a warning message appears and the file is being opened as "read only".

To get the same amounts, correct the multiplier and the exchange rate as follows:
  • Open the file in Banana 9 and confirm the warning message;
  • Recheck the accounting (Shift + F9);
  • The warning messages "Transaction multiplier is not the same as the one in the Exchange rate table" can be ignored;
  • Verify whether the balances and the result of the accounting period present differences compared to those displayed in earlier versions. If there are no differences, just save the accounting under a new name; otherwise, it is necessary to proceed as follows:
  • In the Exchange rate table, for the exchange rates with a multiplier greater than 1, correct the exchage rate by multiplying it with the value of the multiplier and define the multiplier as 1. For example, if we have a multiplier of 100 and an exchange rate of 0.9944608, correct the exchange rate to 99.44608 and the multiplier to 1;
  • Recheck the accounting (Shift + F9);
  • The warning messages "Transaction multiplier is not the same as the one in the Exchange rate table" can be ignored, or it is possible to delete them by clicking, in the corresponding transaction row, on the amount in basic currency and by pressing the F6 key;
  • Verify whether the balances and the result of the accounting period correspond with the ones indicated in earlier versions;
  • Save the file under a new name;
  • At this time, you can define the exchange rates and the multiplier in the preferred format, reverse or direct, with or without multiplier, verifying the balances and the result of the accounting period after each modification.
