moving QIF file to new computer: currencies

When moving to a new laptop and therefore exporting and importing our QIF file, our currencies were no longer correct (we have most accounts in Egyptian pounds and one in Euros, now they are all displayed as dollars). Neither while importing or afterwards it was possible to change the currencies to the correct ones. Is there a solution to this? TIA!

    Do not use QIF files to move between computers. QIF files contain raw transaction information only. Their primary uses are for migrating between different programs and for transaction downloads.

    Instead use the method outlined in the article:
