moneydance version 2023.2 (5007)

hello, the main currency in my moneydance is euro, however i have accounts in USD and IDR beside euro of course
i noticed that when transfering a payment from a IDR bank to a IDR credit crd, the line of the transfer return 0 in the foreign amount, this means that in the total computation of the espenses, for example, they will consider the transer as = to euro, like 500.000 IDR = 500.000 euro,
the accounts themselves are ok, but when you look at your total situation and reports, this create of course a false result,
i tried to manually overwrite the foreign anount value, but it does not allow to do so, it allows it in an expense or income line, not in a transfer line
see attached screen show, circle red the correct value in euro, and the empty circles are when i do the transfers, this false the reports. instead of empty i need the value in euro

    The lack of foreign currency I would expect means the two account are in the same currency, hence no conversion would be required.

    thank you for the assistance and sorry for the late reply

    i found out, you are right that missing change in those transaction is not the problem, i had other transaction which were missing the exchange rate but that was because of the way the rminders were input

    all good and working now

    thank you for the support
