Hi.

I have some few Answers about "Accounting and Finance" module:

Can I set currency for account ----Yeah of-course---- ? What mean secondary currency field? .... Secondary currency fields is generally related with journals n its for to allow to do transaction with other mentioned currency as well.

Do supports OpenERP really multicurrency operations --- Againn yes ---? For example, how can i make money transfer between EUR and USD accounts. -----there is various way to change it eg in Invoices screen look for currency change option. -----

Can I create money transfer between EUR and CHF accounts, if company's currency is USD?----Again yep ---

Ok. Can you explain me how can I do it?

Secondary currency - it is the currency of the account?

So, in what currency account balance is stored?

How can I do simple money transfer (without order and invoice) between EUR and USD accounts?

About currency transfer: I suggest to use an intermediate account and to post your transfer with 2 journal entries. ie: 1 - 'Money out' from your EUR bank account (with a negative sign in the bank statement) 2 - 'Money in' on your USD bank account.

The exchange rate will be applied based on the date of the transaction of course.

You can use it in accounting to record your purchases : one in dollar, and the others in Euro, Rubel. I buy everything in Euro, but I have some Internet Services (credit cards) in USD
