My company currency is INR, i have an account called "account1". I can observer this account value in odoo-7 from accounts and reports menu also in pdf reports, these all showing account value only in company currency. Is it possible to see this account value in USD or other currencies?, I thought this can achieve by analytic account, but there is no  currency option to select while creating analytic account.

In the existing Odoo system,

All your chart of accounts will represent in accordance with Company currency only,which is correct and legitimate one.

Hence presently, no such option exists to show in different currencies...

But coming to this, I think you need to modify the things in such a great extent to achieve your requirement, I suppose you can have an additional field, (secondary currency amount field), and evaluate the monetary process exactly the same way done for all accounts...

In standard, they convert the source amount to Company Currency, If you manage to achieve it with your custom field, then all you need to do is convert the source amount to your required Currency..

But as being said initially, it is quiet tricky process, and you need to replicate the whole thing to meet your requirement, and certainly not easy as such..

So check it out, how you can do in much feasible manner.. Or may be somebody might give you an feasible answer..

Hope for the best! Good Luck...
