Is it possible to change the default currency to Dollars? I'm trying to import my Quicken (v 16) an the import popup shows all the accounts in GBP. I've been using quicken for about 20 years and have dozens of accounts. I'm not in the mood to change nearly 100 accounts. Can I batch this?

    I'm a fellow user.

    I believe the best approach is to set the base currency before you do any imports - you cannot change an accounts currency after the import.

    Given I do not know what stage you are currently at I would use the File --> New menu command to create a new data set , as you go through the dialog you will have the option to set the base currency and will end up with a new data set with the default currency you want.

    That did it, but I had to reboot to get the local change to take. I'm assuming that's what choses the default currency.
