2. Click Refresh. FX transactions under that Accounting Centre will be displayed.
3. Click on the TradeID of the transaction to amend. In this example, FRX100015.00 will be amended.
4. From the Amend Foreign Exchange Outright screen, changes can be made.
5. All fields under Soft Amend button are non-contractual details. If Portfolio, Transaction Type, Project, Ctpy Dealer, Narrative will be changed, clicking Soft Amend button will suffice. This will not change the suffix of the TradeID and does not require re-authorization and re-verification.

8. Click Update. A popup will appear. Click OK.
9. The system will recompute the countervalue. Click Update again. Choose OK in the popup.
10. The Foreign Exchange main screen will be displayed. The TradeID’s suffix changes and the amendments on the amount and exchange rate will be shown.
11. The amended transaction will need to be verified and authorized. For instructions, check Authorizing and Verifying Trades.
