Accounting Currency AX 2012

Hi All,

Is there any way to change the Acocunting currency in Ax 2012, cuz once i have defined say INR as my accounting currency in Gl - Ledger and saved then later i am unable to change it to some other currency.

kindly instruct me…


You can;t change the currency after the ledger setup is done. The reason being, if you select USD as your operational currency, do some transactions and then you want to change the currency, think the level of inconsistencies it may create. also, what exchange rate should system pick since it is dynamic.

Hence, not suggested to change the accounting currency.


Hi Pranav,

Thanks for ur reply,

but assuming that i have not posted any transaction since it’s a new company which i have created and i have wrongly assigned my accounting currency, then in this scenario what is the way forward…

cuz in ax 2009, we had such option but not in ax 12.

Ok Pranav, i got it we can delete before any transactions get posted…



Do you mean you will delete the legal entity?


We have a solution for this. For solution you can email a request at

Apart from the above option , i think there is no solution in Standard AX 2012 or 2012 R2 .
