Management Reporter Currency Does Not Exist Error

Microsoft Dynamics GPI was doing some training on Management Reporter for a client the other week and had an issue to follow up on. The issue was around multicurrency conversion which wasn’t working correctly. When doing some testing around the issue, I was able to reproduce the same currency error the client had encountered:

Currency could not be found error message

Currency XXXX does not exist for company XXXX. No values will be returned.

The currency did exist and on most reports was working fine. It took me a little investigation and research to find that this was an issue with the Data Mart connector; the reports using the legacy connector were working correctly.

This issue is covered in Microsoft KB Article 3058400; when using the Data Mart connector, currency lookups are done using the ISO Code of the Currency rather than the Currency Code itself.
