Triangulation is the process by which a conversion between two currencies takes place by way of a third reference currency. This feature is used in EU countries where the conversion to the EURO is being undertaken whilst the national currency is phased out. To support triangulation, an AX system provides a means to define that you want a currency pair to triangulate through a fixed reference currency.
The actual conversion process is done in a two-step procedure in which the from-currency amount is first converted to the reference currency and then to the destination currency, using the appropriate exchange rates. Supporting triangulation also affects the user interface, as there are now two or possibly three exchange rates that are relevant to the conversion.
When viewing a triangulated conversion at a detailed level, users access three visual rates:. Only one currency can represent the Triangulation currency. To change the Triangulation currency, first clear the Reference currency for triangulation check box on the EUR record in the Currencies form.
Then select the Reference currency for triangulation on the desired currency. Site Search User. Thread information. Share More Cancel.

Copyright Dynamics User Group, all rights reserved.This post deals with the foreign currency revaluation feature available in the Accounts Payable AP module and illustrates the effect that different parameter settings have on the foreign currency revaluation calculation and ledger posting. Please note that the examples and explanations made in the following do also apply for the Accounts Receivable AR module as the foreign currency revaluation functionality in AR is basically identical to the one in AP.
The first part starts with an analysis of the different currency revaluation methods.
Project Accounting Book – Part 2
This part is followed by a subsection on the different financial dimension options available for foreign currency revaluation postings. Part 3 deals with the posting profile parameters and part 4 concludes this post by having a look at the different dates that can be selected when running the foreign currency revaluation process.
In order to illustrate the different foreign currency revaluation method options, three currency revaluations will be run on January and Because of the appreciation of the USD, an unrealized foreign currency loss of EUR arises that is shown in the following revaluation report. The unrealized loss is posted on the account for unrealized currency losses and increases the vendor liability expressed in EUR currency correspondingly.
Result: The revaluation report and the corresponding voucher show that the invoice method reverses the previous foreign currency revaluation.
This time, the considered date and date of rate values are set to 31 January. Result: This time, Dynamics AX does not record any foreign currency revaluation adjustment and does not create a voucher. Part 2: Foreign currency revaluation dimensions After having a look at the different method options available for foreign currency revaluations, the financial dimensions parameter is investigated next. If the foreign currency revaluation process is started with this parameter setup, Dynamics AX shows the following message: If you confirm this message with Yes and run the foreign currency revaluation, a voucher similar to the one shown in the next screen-print results: As one might expect, the foreign currency revaluation adjustment is recorded without any financial dimension value.
Please see the following screen-print for details. Result: This time, the foreign currency revaluation voucher is generated with the financial dimension that has been used for posting the vendor invoice. Part 3: Foreign currency revaluation posting profile In this this part I want to focus on the difference that the selection of a specific posting profile makes to the foreign currency adjustment voucher.
Result: Different from what one would expect from the parameter settings shown above, the foreign currency adjustment voucher still uses the same vendor summary account No. Please see the next screen-print. Note: Using a separate posting profile for recording unrealized foreign currency profits can help companies in two ways.
The consideration behind this statement is that only risks from external currency fluctuations should be hedged while group internal currency risks do not require costly hedging instruments. Second, the separation of currency revaluation effects on separate ledger accounts can alleviate the financial consolidation process.
Part 4: Foreign currency revaluation dates After reversing the previous foreign currency revaluation once again, a second vendor invoice for USD is recorded on 1 st February. For details, please see the next screen-prints. Because the considered date 31 January is before the date the second vendor invoice was posted 1 Februaryonly the unrealized foreign exchange rate gain for the first invoice is taken into consideration.
After reversing the previous foreign currency revaluation, the revaluation process is re-run with a considered date value that is after the date on which the second vendor invoice was recorded. Result: This time, both invoices are included in the foreign currency revaluation process for recording the unrealized foreign exchange rate gain. Till next time.

We use a separate expense management system and we send expenses to expense management via an endpoint. If an expense management posting is Intercompany, the way in which the exchange rate is being chosen by D is the available rate based on the transaction date of the expense.
Example: we have 1 rate per month effective on the last day of the month. An expense with a transaction date of August 15 is entering into D on Oct D ill attempt to post the transaction to Aug 15, but the period is on Hold so it will post to the first day of the next Open Period Oct 1 in this case. However, the exchange rate applied to teh IC posting will be the July 31 rate the rate available on Aug 15th.

To be honest, I got this requirement way back in when we were doing a multi country roll out for an Insurance and Medical services provider enterprise. At that time, Dynamics AX had introduced the exchange rate integration just then and personally I was hesitant to roll that out.
