Re: Need to identify the currency of the data file

Hi @nic-acc-addons1 , in v19.x you could set any currency as your base currency, but at the moment (v2019.2.1) only the AUD and NZD can be base currencies in their respective country files, so if you know the country, you know the currency. This might change in the future I suppose, but it holds for now. I hope I have interpreted your question correctly.

Need to identify the currency of the data file

We've recently got the custom requirement to identify the currency of the data file so that we know what currencies the transactions are posted in with and without multi-currency turned on.


I thought that maybe the following endpoints would provide this information






Unfortunately the best we can find is the REGION of the data file.


Is there plans to update one of the endpoints above to include what currency the data file is in ?

Didn't find your answer here?
