i wanted to account travel expenses from a foreign country in a foreign currency (EUR). i uploaded the ticket pdf's into "source document images" and linked them. As a supplier i chose the flight/ferry-company and selected EUR as a currency. i posted it to the ledger account 5800 (travel expenses). in the source documents description the amount 214+321eur and currency "EUR" is correct. if i go into accounting -> ledger -> account 5800 the two amounts 214 and 321 are just added as a number. so they are treated within 5800-account as if they where SEK. now -of course- my travel expenses account is mixed up and the balance is wrong. 

when i create an invoice to a person in a Euro country (with currency EUR) the amount is automatically converted to SEK and added to the accounting correctly. so i thought it will be the same for expenses, but it is obviously not. am i doing something wrong?

- how can i account travel expenses in EUR without messing up my 5800-account ? there has to be a way to automatically convert it to SEK right?
- how can i undo the incorrect transaction and remove them from the account ?

thanks and greetings,

We have investigate this now and it works as expected in eAccounting. When you create Purchase reciept in another currency eAccounting will not convert the amount to SEK. 

I understand that this would be great to have as a function so I will take it with me as an improvement. If this is something that will be implemented in eAccounting we will update this thread. :)

Have a nice easter!
