Usage

This object is for multicurrency organizations only. Use this object to define the currencies your organization uses.

When updating an existing record, make sure to provide values for all fields to avoid undesired changes to the CurrencyType. For example, if a value for IsActive is not provided, the default (false) is used, which could result in a currently active CurrencyType becoming inactive.
