Access Multi-Currency Rate Tables in New Versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP


Email | Print

As new versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP are released, there are increasing points of contact between Dynamics GP and Microsoft Office.  One connection that hasn’t appeared yet concerns multi-currency.  However, you can simplify finding the multi-currency rates by using Microsoft Office Excel 2007 or 2010.

Dynamics GP and Microsft FRx need access to multi-currency rate tables.  Instead of manually creating these tables you can use a feature in Excel 2007/2010 to pull the rates into Excel.

Open Excel.  Select the Data tab.  Click on the Existing Connections icon.

The Existing Connections window opens, scroll down and select the MSN MoneyCentral Investor Currency Rates connection, click Open.

Enter a location for the rate table (the current cell location will be the default), click OK

Shortly a list of currencies showing exchange rates with US dollars will appear.
