Q: Making Dollar Transactions Much Simpler In Bullets Multi Currency Accounting Software?

Looking at my credit card statement (AIB), I have mostly US $ transactions. I know what the $ amount is, and I know the € amount that I’ve been charged. Why can’t I just enter those value manually?
Instead, this is the dance I have to go through.

  • Enter the $ amount
  • Type in the transaction exchange rate from my statement into a calculator and do 1/exchange rate to get the inverse
  • Put this inverse rate into Bullet so it can calculate the € amount (which I already know)
  • Inevitably, the € amount charged and the € amount that Bullet calculates differ (sometimes by a few cent, sometimes a few euro). It’s probably because the exchange rate listed is slightly wrong so I have to go back and manually calculate the real exchange rate and try again.

Please make this process 10x simpler: just let us enter the Euro and $ amounts.
