While waiting for Reckon to fix up the issue, hope not too long, you may try to display the Actual Rate field (select the field from the Modify Report |  Display tab | Columns).

Then, use the Export function to export your report into Microsoft Excel.

From the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, add a new column and use the PRODUCT () function to calculate the Foreign Open Balance (Open Balance field / Actual Rate field or Open Balance field * Actual Rate; depending on your base currency value).
