Summary:

The account, being units based, should contain in parent currency the same value as in entity currency. This is the case for all movements, except for the opening balance. We are seeing this when currency is different in the parent entity vs. the base entity.

We are using the following configuration in the account dimension:

  • Data Type: Non-Currency
  • Account Type: Saved Assumption
  • Time Balance: flow
  • Exchange Rate Type: No Rate (Greyed out field)

Open and closing mechanism is correctly but when moving from Entity Currency to Parent Currency the conversion is done against the real currency conversion rate instead of a x 1 multiplication. We did try to add a translation overrule at a rate of 1, but did not see an impact with or without the rule.

Howdy, Stranger!
