Updating a Currency’s Name when Only ISO Code is Displayed

If you activated a new currency before it was fully available in Foundations, only the ISO code is displayed.

For example:

  • In Foundations Spring 2023, you began using Sierra Leone’s new currency, SLE. The currency displays as SLE - SLE, rather than the full name.
  • You want to continue using the currency, but would like the name displayed to contain more detail, such as SLE - Sierra Leone Leone.

To display the full name, complete the following steps:

  1. From Setup, navigate to the Exchange Rate Group object.
  2. Navigate to the Selected Currencies field and click the field label to view the field information.
  3. In the Values section, edit the currency that relates to the new currency.
  4. Enter the new label and API name in the format ISO Code - Currency Name, for example SLE - Sierra Leone Leone. For more information about editing a field, see the Salesforce Help.
  5. If you also use the new currency as a default currency, edit the label and API name on the Default Currency field.
