  2. Click:
    • Add Standard Currency and choose from the list of standard currencies. You can start typing the name of the country or the full name of the currency into the search field to find it. Don't search by abbreviation.
    • Add User Defined Currency to create your own currency. Enter a Currency Name and a Currency Code. See User Defined Currency.

Currency codes requirements: alpha-numeric, no spaces, no special characters, and 4-8 characters long.

  1. From the Decimal places dropdown, select the amount of decimal places you want the currency to show in your model.
  2. As an option, select Create default reporting rates
    When this box is checked, the system creates direct exchange rates between the new currency and all other active currencies in the system. See Default Reporting Rates.
  3. Click Save.

The rate for user defined currencies is blank for actual versions, and 1 for planning versions until you change it.  To enter exchange rates,  go to Modeling > Model Management > Exchange Rates.

Edit Currencies
