It’s nice to see you in the Community, danny-hanyurwimf.
Thanks for considering using the Multicurrency tool in managing your foreign currency. Allow me to provide some information on how this option works.
QuickBooks Online uses the most recent exchange rates from Markit. They are stored based on a combination of currency code and the rate’s effective date (as-of date). This is why the exchange rate is different.

I'll share some insights about multicurrency works in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
QBO uses exchange rates to show you how much currency transactions is in your home currency value. It also uses this rates for your report. It converts foreign currency amount to your home currency value to included all transactions in your report.

Furthermore, if it doesn't convert your rates, I recommend logging out and logging back in to your account to refresh it.

I am having a similar issue - For some reason several amounts on a Profit & Loss Report are not converted to the home currency (CRC) and instead show the amount in USD, making the total amounts inaccurate. These are transactions in a USD account and when I pull up the details it correctly says USD but the bottom where the home currency total is shown does not convert it either.
How do I fix this to show the accurate totals in the home currency? I see no option on the report settings to show the totals in USD, so I usually export to excel and do this manually.
