When should I make a general journal
To do this task
Go to the Company menu and click Make General Journal Entries.
Use the Currency field to select the currency to record the journal entry in.
Why can't I change the currency on some journal entries?
Select the Home Currency Adjustment checkbox only if you need to enter an adjustment to your foreign account balances. For more information, see home currency adjustments.
Enter an exchange rate if the journal entry's currency is foreign or if you enter a foreign account on the form. QuickBooks uses the rate to convert foreign amounts into home currency amounts.
Note: The exchange rate field is grayed out and uses a value of 1 when only home currency accounts are used or when the Home Currency Adjustment checkbox is selected.
In the Make General Journal Entries window, change the date if necessary.
Fill in the entry number.
In the detail area, enter distribution
Save the journal entry.
