Revaluation of balance sheet item in foreign currency using closing rate?

My year end is 31 December 2013. We close our year 2013 recently. When we tried to revalue balance sheet items in foreign currencies using closing rate, for example, bank balance and accounts receivable, we find out the system can only revalue the balance up to now, not the year end. 

I tried second way to pass a journal entry to adjust the home currency of the above mentioned account without changing foreign currency amount, again it fails (as I can not use exchange rate as zero). But desktop version of quickbook can do it in this way.

Please advise this urgently!

In order to revalue or make changes to the currency, you may refer to the steps below;
- click on the gear icon
- click on the currency centre
- select the currency > hover on the currency where you see a drop down arrow > you may click on the currency adjustment and enter the value which you need.

And also once you do this, you would not need to pass a journal entry for this

Hope this helps :)

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
