Hello,

could you please advise what could be the best way to show in the same table different currencies. Lets say there would be a button which would case the cells to convert to different currencies. For example: A1 cell is 5 USD, but after hitting a button it would show 3 GBP.

Thanks a lot

Hi DG83,

Hi DG83,

Well you need to know two things: Create button and do some math in VBA.

I just explained how to create a button. Check out my comment on 11 march in this link:

And here is the math example:
```Range("A1").Value = Range("A1").Value * 3 / 5
Range("B1").Value = "GBP"```

Combine the two to change currency with the click of a button.

If you need more assistance then it may be helpfull to post your workbook (www.speedyshare.com).

Thanks a lot Trowa. To keep it the simplest: let's say tat cells A1:B10 contain single numbers. I don't have the X change rate. I would create a button and after hitting it it would replace the numbers in the cells with the recalculated values based on the X change rate. So if A1 was 5 than after the button hit it would become 10 given the rate is two. So a simple macro would do it probably.
Sorry I meant I do have the X change rate
