existing account with changing to multi currency

if I have an existing account in Cdn in books but actually US $, (I add an exchange entry at year end) - how do I use that account after the conversion?  Thought process is make it zero before the change and once converted, add the new account in US currency to enter the amount in US currency so I reduce as needed.  I have prepaid US $ and collected US $ for 2024 purchases - which way do I handle this to make the transition correct once I change to multi currency?
