: I have set up multiple portfolios, with the portfolio file and security data for each portfolio stored in sub-directories under the "my_data" directory. Some portfolios are US $'s and some are CAD. I have also created combined portfolios that include different groupings of the same securities, with mixed currencies. When I open different portfolios, the same security is shown with different currencies (under investment/properties), sometimes CAD, sometimes USD. For example, on my screen now I have a report showing WEN as USD. If I close that portfolio and open a different one, WEN shows as CAD with the same absolute dollar value. I have checked the filename and path for the security and they are both the same. I thought the currency was stored with the security? Any ideas?

Hi Stephen,

Investments remember which currency number they belong to. The actual labels
to use for each currency number are set under "Options/Currency Settings..."
and are memorized in portfolios. It sounds like you have different labels
assigned in each of the different portfolios. You can fix it by opening up
each portfolio, and making sure the Currency Settings... have the same labels
assigned for each currency number.
