We use multi currency, USD and CAD. Some gotchas I can think of:
ORD700, US customer with Canadian warehouse and vice versa. ORD700 will
issue a warning message but allows the order to be entered. . During
shipping the COGS/Inventory GL entries are in CAD, the sales and AR are
USD. May or may not be a problem, for us this is how we want it work.
Purchase orders entered for a Canadian warehouse using a US vendor and
vice/versa. The GL entries from any receipts hit the vendor master
company. This is a problem. During PO entry PUR500 will issue a
warning message if the warehouse company number doesn't match the vendor
company number. We modified PUR500D3 to make this a hard error. There
is also a GL issue with resupply orders using warehouses in different
countries, I don't recall the specifics of that one. With enough time I
could think of some more...... :) But over all we are happy with it.

[BPCS-L] Multiple Currencies
My Company had used multiple currencies (CAD & USD) previously and just
moved the company with the CAD to a different environment. I was not
there during that time and am not aware of the issues that could have
driven them to move a company to another environment to solve the issues.
Can anyone share with me their experiences, good or bad, with using
multiple currencies and the "Gotchas" that might have made this endeavor
