Convert Currency

How to Switch from USD to EUR, CAD, AUD, etc.

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to convert currency from one type to another. We will learn how to convert US to Canadian dollars, but the same technique applies to Euros, Australian Dollars, etc.

Rodney from Buffalo, New York (a Gold Member) asks: We are located near the Canadian border. We do a lot of business in Canada. Is there an easy way to display our prices in both USD and CAD without having to manually change them all the time, everywhere in the database? It would be nice to just go into a form in the database once a day and type in the current conversion rate.


Members will learn how to create a currency conversion table so you can easily switch between multiple types of currency, and display more than one currency on your forms, reports, etc.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

In the CurrencyT table that we make in the Extended Cut, just add the symbol there. You could then just DLookup it in the conversion function.

Suggestion...Maybe include the date of the Currency pull down from the Web and include that in the table.  That way historical data should not be affected depending on how you have your code written for invoices.
