Can't select my currency

on 9/6/16, 10:23 AM 732 views


I assume this is not a new question although I can't find one where it has been asked. 

I have setup Odoo and need to change my company currency to ZAR. The only options I have in the drop down is EUR and USD. If I try create ZAR it tells me it is not unique. So it seems that ZAR exists although is not available for selection. 

any ideas?

1. Go to "Accounting/Configuration/Settings" and allow "multi currencies", then apply

2. Go to "Accounting/Configuration/Multi-Currencies/Currency" and activate the currencies you want to use, these will show up in the list of selectable currencies in the company settings.

I had the same problem.

I filled out repeatedly Field



"Symbol Position"

and then it was stored.

This is a wrong answer. You should not do this.
