auto update currency?

P: n/a
Hi all, anyone know how I can create a currency table from a website with up
to date exchange rates .

the system I'm working on needs to store the exchange rates (compared to
GBP) every month on a set date. Each month the exchange rates need to be
imported into a new table-not replacing the old exchange rates

All help appreciated

If you want this to be done auto-magically by your application the
only non waste of time way to go is to find a service that provides
the data in a standard format like an excel spreadsheet, xml or
csv file. Screen-scraping is generally prohibited by sites that publish
this kind of info. Aside from that, page layout and location can change
at any time causing all kinds of you looking foolish.
