Fields available on the FOREIGN CURRENCY file.
FOREIGN CURRENCY CODE This is the code you wish to access the currency by. It is an abbreviation of the name of the code, eg USD for U.S. Dollar or EUR for Euro.
DESCRIPTION A short description of the currency, or its actual name. It may be up to 50 characters long. This field must not be left blank.
SYMBOL This is a 3 character code and can be basically anything that the keyboard will allow you to enter. This symbol is printed on Purchase Orders, so it is also important that the character can be printed, correctly, on your printer. Some experimentation may be necessary.
CONVERSION RATE FROM $A This is the conversion rate from $A to the Foreign Currency. It is the default rate and can be overwritten during processing.
