Changing an brokerage account currency


Can someone tell me if it is possible to change on the fly a $US brokerage currency to $CDN currency.

I have tried using EDIT account but it does work.

Note I use ver. 22.35

Thanks in advance

    You can't change the currency of an account once it has been established.
    You need to create a new brokerage account, with the proper currency and move the transactions to that account.
    Take a backup before you do this ... just in case.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have tried that:
    * I created a new account in $CDN
    * I have selected 1 transaction and choose move
    * Then a windows opens and prompts me to choose transactions and I choose select all
    * Then I select move to $CDN account
    * A message appears showing a transfer
    * When I select $CDN account, only 2 transactions have been treansfer
    * When I select $US account all transaction have been deleted

    Is there another way to do this?

    Personally I think this last version is bugged.
