How To Setup Quicken To Use Multiple Currencies

Updated: 5/08/2012 | Article ID: GEN82303

Overview

If you use Quicken to track accounts in banks located in more than one country, or if you have foreign investment accounts, Quicken can track each account in the currency you specify.

Instructions

  1. Choose Edit menu > Preferences.
  2. In the left pane, select Calendar and currency.
  3. In the right pane, select Multicurrency support.
  4. Click OK.
    It takes a moment for Quicken to assign your default, or home, currency to all your accounts and investments. You'll notice that the symbol for your default currency has been added to monetary amounts in your register, the Portfolio View window, and elsewhere.
  • To view your default currency:

      Click the Windows Start menu > Control Panel. Find and double-click Regional Settings. The location shown in the Regional Settings tab determines your default currency. Click the Currency tab to see examples of how amounts in this currency are represented.
      Quicken refers to your default currency as your home currency.
  • To disable multicurrency support:

      Follow the steps described above, but for step 3 clear the check box instead of selecting it.
      You can only disable multicurrency support if you have previously deleted all foreign accounts and securities. If you believe you've done so, check for hidden accounts and securities in a foreign currency, and delete them as well.
