This feature improves the precision of calculations of retained earnings when earnings are calculated across multiple years using currency translation.

When you enable this feature, any retained earnings account that has the Currency translation type set to Transaction date will calculate the translated balance of the account using rates and balances from its entire history, rather than only the year and rate.
