Currency Code should be same for Payment and Invoice

Posted on by 227
I enabled "Applying between currencies" on purchase & payables setup. But still I am getting following error when I tried to apply an AUD (local currency) payment to a USD invoice. 

"Currency code should be same for payment and invoice"

Am I missing a setup here?

    Hi, Please can I check, if you create the payment journal line manually - pick the vendor, then set currency, then set applies to doc type then pick the USD document - do you get this message?
    Please also try this exercise - post the payment in USD but don't apply it to any invoices, then use the Apply Entries action on the Vendor Ledger page 
    try to set the applies to ID - do you get an error or it will let you post the application? 
    .. In short The setting you have used should be working as expected, last thing to try and double check for sure you are in the same company where you updated the settings? As a final test, copy the company and try to process a brand new purchase invoice and payment across currencies - to see if that makes any difference! 
    Hope that helps
