Exchange Rates Import

 You can import exchange rates from a CSV file to populate the table more quickly for many currencies at once. To import user rates, first prepare your data file using the format described below, and then click the import icon (

) located at the top right of the user rates table to launch the import wizard.

User rates import file format

The exchange rates for import should be stored in a CSV file containing 4 columns:

ColumnDescriptionFormat notes
Main currencyCurrency to be convertedRequired. A valid ISO 4217 Three letters currency code.
Targeted currencyCurrency to convert toRequired. A valid ISO 4217 Three letters currency code.
Exchange Rate
Exchange rateRequired.  A positive (≥ 0) number.
Effective DateDate at which the specified rate becomes effective.A blank value means "since forever". Only one exchange rate per main currency / targeted currency can have a blank effective date.

The first row of the file must be the column headers. Note that you can use different column names than the ones listed above for headers, since the import wizard will allow you to map columns from the CSV file to the corresponding fields of userexchange rates.

For more details about preparing the CSV file for import, please refer to Importing Data from CSV.
