2. Login on CSA. Go to "System" section and tick "Multi-currency Enabled".



3. From command line window: Go under your ../<CA PPM home>/database/sql folder.


dbpatch -install -file SET_MULTICURRENCY.xml -apply



4. Start CA PPM services


5. Login on CA PPM. Ensure your administrator user has got following rights:

Financial Maintenance – Financial Management
Financial Maintenance – Financial Organizational Structure


It should be already granted. But, If they are not, assign rights to desired user(s)/group(s). Log off and in back again.


6. Go to Administration / Finance / Setup / "Currency" and configure your currencies:



7. Mark as "Active" desired currencies:



8. Go back to Setup page. Go to "Foreign Exchange Rates"
