How to Setup a Multicurrency Accounts Payable Ledger in Sage 300 Accounts Payable


  1. On the Processing tab of the A/P Options screen, select the Multicurrency option for Accounts Payable.
    • Note: Once you turn on the Multicurrency option, you cannot turn it off again.
  2. Use the A/P Account Sets screen to add at least one account set for each currency you want to use in Accounts Payable.
  3. When you create vendor groups and vendor records, select the account set and the rate type for each record.
    • The vendor’s account set determines the vendor’s currency.  The vendor group account set is only a default when adding vendor records.  You can override  it.
  4. If you post transactions to add year-to-date figures, enter them in the appropriate currencies.
  5.  If you enter statistics for previous years and periods, you must enter amounts in both the functional and vendor currencies.  Accounts Payable cannot calculate equivalent amounts from statistics you enter yourself.
