A currency code must be specified for an amount field – Ax2012 Workflow

When working with workflow, I faced an error while activating the workflow version –  “A currency code must be specified for an amount field ”


I was not sure if it is mandatory to include the Currency field in “Activation” condition. But including that field explicitly did not help on this issue.

One of my condition for activation is including Amount field and giving some values for it. Nobody would have noticed a small grey box next to amount value. Leaving this empty would give the above said error.



On clicking this, user is given an option to choose the currency.



When the currency is selected , error is gone!!!!

Make sure you choose the company currency else you might end up with workflow not getting triggered for your postings…
