Currency conversion rates are used when data is uploaded from a cinema which has a currency different to the currency at Head Office. Vista’s upload procedures look for the conversion rate with the latest effective date that is not greater than today.
You can create and edit currency conversion rates in Head Office > Maintenance > Currency Conversion Rates.
Note: Ensure you've created an entry for each of the currencies used by your circuit currencies in Head Office > Maintenance > Currencies. If all your cinemas operate using the same currency as Head Office, then you don't need to configure currency conversion rates.
Enter new conversion rates as frequently as you wish - you can add one rate for each day. Often, as Head Office is used more for management information than detailed accounting, you may wish to 'strike' a rate for the accounting year and use the rate all year so that it is easier to compare data.
Note: You need to enter conversion rates in advance. You can't alter the rates or effective dates of current or past conversion rates.
