ASP Currency Converter

Hi,

I have a web page which displays various data reports.
One field displays GBP. I would like to display the conversion to $
next to it, i.e.

Charge 100 ($172)

Is there anywhere I can link to for this info, or do I have to enter
the exchange rate myself in a db field and do the calc in a script ?

Appreciate your advice.

thanks

David

If all your visitors have JavaScript enabled then you could use AJAX
to dynamically retrieve the current conversion rate.

Another (obvious) approach would be to just manually maintain it.

Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to the newsgroup of your submission.

You could have an ASP page retrieve the current conversion factor.
Rather than looking it up repeatedly it could be done once per session.
