I get the following error why?

Odoo Warning - Validation Error Error while validating constraint The selected account of your Journal Entry forces to provide a secondary currency. You should remove the secondary currency on the account. None

Please use a meaningful title. I did edit for now.

Thanks for the help



The account must not have company currency as secondary currency. i.e. if my company currency is USD, my accounts can not have USD as second currency, it would raise warning while posting journal entry. You should remove that currency from account.

Please check the assigned currencies of your corresponding accounts and journals. As long as it is not necessary you should not preassign currencies except you know exactly what you are doing.
