Setting currency types

Use the Currency Types settings to specify which currency types become the allowable and functional currency types by default when you add a currency field to a form in BMC Remedy Developer Studio. These currency types (represented by three-character abbreviations such as USD) are stored in the BMC Remedy AR System Currency Codes form. The types appearing in the Currency Types tab are those marked as active in the Currency Codes form. 

Note

Web reports support currency fields, but do not support currency value and currency type. BMC Remedy AR System reports support currency value and currency type.

See Currency fields.

To set currency types

  1. In a browser, open the BMC Remedy AR System Administration Console, and click System > General > Server Information.

    Description

    Choose Default Allowable Types

    Allowable currency types are types that are valid entries in a currency field. These currency types are visible in menus or lists in BMC Remedy Developer Studio and in client screens. From the list in the left column, select a currency type, and click Add. Your selection is added to the table on the right, which shows the three-character currency type and the default decimal precision level for that currency type. For example, the currency type USD has a default of two decimals of precision. You can modify this precision level by entering a new value in the Precision column. For example, to specify four decimals of precision, enter 4. To remove a currency type, select it and click Remove.

    Choose Default Functional Types

    You must also specify the functional currencies stored as part of the field value. When a request is submitted that includes a currency value, the server converts that value to a functional currency type and stores it. You must include at least one functional currency type. You can specify an unlimited number of functional currency types; however, adding more than five currency types might have an adverse effect on server performance. From the list in the left column, select a functional currency type, and click Add. Your selection is added to the table on the right, which shows the three-character currency type and the default decimal precision level for that currency type. For example, the currency type USD has a default of two decimals of precision. You can modify this precision level by entering a new value in the Precision column. For example, to specify four decimals of precision, enter 4. To remove a currency type, select it and click Remove.

  4. Click Apply.
