I have £ changed to $ in our single-cirrency mode on our QB 2013 desktop app. changed to multi-curr and now can't go back to single curr mode. please advise

On QB 2013 desktop version £ changed suddenly to $. Tried to use changing currency options. Changed to multi-currency with £ only active, but not letting me to change back to single currency mode. Verying the data/Rebuilding the data as a solution from one of the topics here is not working. Please advise what to do now to switch back to single-currency mode. Thanks


Once multi-currency is enabled, it is on. You can restore from the backup file you made before changing it.

The Currency Sign usually reflects an issue with a Windows update changing the Region, Language, Currency to US. You put it back to UK, and the currency sign in QB will be correct.

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.
