Integrating the Euro Currency

With the introduction of the euro currency, businesses need to maintain books in two currencies, add new fields to the data source designs, and perform new types of currency conversions. You can perform currency conversions according to the rules specified by the European Union. To do this:

  1. Create a currency data source with the currency IDs and exchange rates you will use. See Creating the Currency Data Source.
  2. Identify fields in your data sources that represent currency data. See Identifying Fields That Contain Currency Data.
  3. Activate your currency data source. See Activating the Currency Data Source.
  4. Perform currency conversions. See Processing Currency Data.

Note: As the euro symbol becomes available to operating systems, Information Builders will support it.
