Answer :

Use journal entry to do the adjustment.

Go to G/L > Journal Entry to create new journal. In the journal entry,

1) Select Currency Code = MYR, Currency Rate = 1.0000

2) Currency Rate (for USD Bank A/C) = 0.0000, Currency Rate (for Gain on Foreign Exchange A/C) = 1.0000

3) If home balance is negative, you need to Debit the amount for USD bank a/c, If home balance is positive, you need to Credit the amount for USD bank a/c
