Hello! I sometimes spend money in two different currencies, $ and £.
This usually works fine, but it breaks a few reports. For example, now I
can't do this:
$ ledger reg --monthly -j ^Expenses:
While evaluating value expression:
While converting $20.00
£15.00 to an amount:
While calling function 'quantity $20.00
Error: Cannot convert a balance with multiple commodities to an amount
That's fine, I'm happy converting it to $ so it's all the same commodity, so I did this:
P 2023/04/01 08:11:09 £ $1.2332433
And added --market, but that didn't help. The manual gave me the idea this might work:
= expr commodity == "£"
; VALUE:: market(amount, date, exchange)
But that didn't help either.
Perhaps this is because ledger thinks £ is a currency and not a
commodity? Is there a way to force it to be a commodity?
Obviously I can just do ^Expenses: and expr "commodity == '$'", but then
I will have to make a different report for each currency!
