Changing the Default Currency for Expense Line Items

If end users need to report multiple expenses that were incurred in currency other than their reimbursement currency, they can change the default currency for line items within an individual expense report. This default is set using the Currency field for the expense report. The value of the Currency field does not affect the kind of currency that is used in the Expense Report Total field and the Reimbursable Amount fields of the report. The following procedure explains how to change the default currency for line items within an expense report.
