select currency grayed out when screen is customized

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Hello Everyone,

I am upgrading a client to SL version 8.01.21219.00 (

They are a multi-company, multi-currency environment.  The currency manager setup has 'Activate multi-currency entry...' checked.

In the 'Voucher and Adjustment Entry' screen, in standard mode, I can click the 'Select currency' icon and then lookup/type the desired currency ID.

Then, in both 'Self' and 'All Users' customization modes (separately), I added a text box and attached it to apdoc.user1 then placed the text box to the 'manual check/payment' tab.

After saving the customizations, I closed the voucher screen and reopened it.  From there, I clicked the 'Select currency' icon but the currency ID field is grayed out.

I was able to reproduce this in a local SL Demo System/Application database (same version).  This demo database had no prior customizations.

Has anyone experienced this and found a solution?

    Hi Melanie,

    I believe you opened a case about this.  The workaround was to put in these three lines of code into the VBA editor.  Did that work for you?

    Private Sub Form1_Display()

    Call Edit_New(0)

    End Sub
