Hello,

I'm trying to establish a dynamic currency conversion macro that would update my excel sheet with the current exchange rate. Is there an existing function that pulls this information? Is there a plug-in that I would be able to apply?

I appreciate all suggestions.

Convert text numbers to real numbers
Select a column containing text numbers. Press Alt+D E F to quickly convert text to numbers. Faster than "Convert to Number"

That may be a good start. I'll be converting multiple currencies into USD within the same spreadsheet so I'm looking into the best way to handle each currency.

Welcome to the Board!


If you go to Data-->From Web you can link to a webpage like http://www.x-rates.com/.


Once that's done you can set the refresh period or do it manually.


HTH,

Thanks for that tip! I think that may be easier than creating a macro.
