Cross-Currency Transactions

When a transaction occurs between an account in one currency and an account/category in a different currency, Moneydance will default to the current exchange rate.

When a cross-currency transaction is created, you'll see amounts are automatically populated into the "Rate" and "Foreign Amount" fields of the transaction (as shown in the screenshot below).


If you would like to use a different exchange rate -

  • Enter any amount in the “Payment” or “Deposit” field of the transaction
    (using the same currency as the account you're using).
  • Then enter the other currency amount in the “Foreign Amount” field
    (directly below the "Deposit" field).
  • This will automatically update the amount displayed in the "Rate" field.

Your currency exchange rates can also be amended within Tools > Currencies.
You'll find information about updating your currency exchange rates in this article.
