Goal

Consider the following scenario:

The company trying to set up multi-currency books is a USD based company. If it buys a building for 1 million EUROs, will the cost be translated to USD in PeopleSoft? GAAP rules indicate that the balance sheet should be translated based on a current rate/year-end rate and the income statement should be translated using a weighted average rate (SFAS 52).

How does the Asset Management module handle the two different currencies?
