If you wish at a later date to reconcile this account against your bank statements, you may do so by clicking on the Bank reconciliation option under the advanced tab. You may run a reconciliation at any time by going to View - Accounting - Bank Reconciliation

In order to see the balances and transactions of any foreign currency account you may print the report Currency account printout. This report will give you a full overview of all transactions relating to this account, in both your currency and that of the account.
