Field Types: Currency Vs Number

(Doc ID 2079875.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 24, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Sales - Version 11.1.10.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Would you please advise on the differences between the two field types and if it is considered that the currency field supports automatic conversion based on user locale?
All standard Opportunity revenue fields are of type Number and not Currency. We have tested a few custom currency fields and we see no obvious difference between currency and number fields.
