In my structure, I have a USD parent with a CAD child. The translation feature works fine for GL accounts and Metric accounts, but the amounts shown on the parent for Custom accounts are the untranslated child amounts. Is there a setting on the Custom accounts that I need to trigger to pick up the translated amounts?
There is a setting for Custom accounts. Go to Modeling > Custom Accounts, then select the account and change the Display As setting to Currency. The values will convert using your currency exchange rate.
