What part are you having trouble with? What VB are you using? VBA, VB6, or VB.NET?

Thanks for the reply! I'm using VB6 and i have this project making a Bureau de change program and all i basically need is the method of converting one currency to another including the exchange rate.

for example

http://www.currencyconverter.uk.com/go/

but as a program not a website.

The web site is very nice and shows what is needed to design a solution. As an example, enter 1000 as the units, converting from Thai baht to Euros. It gives you the answer as
1,000.00 Thai baht = 21.34 Euros
but it also gives you some more information:
Exchange rate: 0.021342
Rate valid as of: 27/3/2007

So, how did it get 21.34 as the answer?

Also, wouldn't it be nicer to say
฿1,000.00 = 21.34
What would you have to add to the program to do that?

I think I should just point out that, as SammyB has implied but not actually stated, we do not hand out complete copy-and-paste solutions to classwork and homework.

Don't let that discourage you, though - we are quite happy to help you in gaining an understanding of the subject, which is better for everyone - especially yourself. :)
