Discrepancy in Currency Conversion w.r.t MultiCurrency

on 2/26/15, 5:23 AM 1,031 views

Due to the restriction of Decimal digits percision in the Currency (i.e upto 6 decimal dights), the exact conversion rate cannot be entered...

So I find the applied Conversion Rate on Invoice Amount while been passed to Journal Entry is having some minute loss of amount...

Though the loss/gain of Conversion Rate is viable for single record, but there exists a enormous discrepancy in terms of Numerous Invoice Records...

So I would like to know, is there any fix for this....,

One thing is for sure though, if I increase the Currency master digits percision, this problem can be solved... So I wonder why Odoo has given the option of entering the conversion rate equivalent to 1(base currency) after division of 1

Say for example:
If Base Currency is INR, which is 1:
Then USD conversion is 60INR,  so in odoo we need to enter 0.0166667 (i.e 1/60 = 0.016666667)

Instead I would suggest why not we enter it is 60, in that way I feel the division decimals will be retained as it is, and even the resultant will have no loss..

However I feel there must exist something in order to fix it...
