Chart of Accounts currency field not editable or displayed in Edit One Account screen

Chart of Accounts currency field is not editable or displayed online when you select one and say to edit it. It does not dislay the currency field. It should be displayed, even if there's a reason to not allow editing it.

 

Need it to be sure looking at correct account, e.g. context.

Chart of Accounts currency field not editable or displayed in Edit One Account screen

That is a good thought, @AL_67. Allow me to provide some insights about the editing of an account in the Chart of Accounts.

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), you can no longer edit the currency once you've already set up the account in the Chart of Accounts. Also, the Currency field will only display when you edit the Bank, Credit Card, Assets, and Liability type accounts. Thus, the screenshot you've shared shows that you're trying to edit an income type account. However, this isn't editable.

 

You can consider creating a new account and use the appropriate currency. Here's how:

 

  1. Click Accounting from the left menu, then select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Select New.
  3. From the Currency drop-down, choose the currency you're going to use.
  4. Choose the Account Type and Detail Type, then enter the account name.
  5. Click Save and Close.

I'm adding this article for more details: Add an account to your chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online.
