If prior to printing the guest folio the user has not changed the Summary Currency setting on the Folio Style screen, Opera prints reference currency information on the folio using the payer’s reference currency. The payer’s reference currency is set using the Reference currency field on the Profile screen. If no reference currency is available for the payer, the reference currency is taken from the Reference Currency Code application setting.
