Download Rates for Sage 300

Download Rates provides a practical way to download currency exchange rates from internet services and store these rates in Sage 300 databases. The program is designed to run as an unattended Windows Scheduled Task or from a user interface.

The downloaded interbank rates can be adjusted by a specified percentage so as to more accurately represent future settlement rates. A mapping table will translate from ISO to Sage 300 Currency Codes. Download Rates provides a practical way to support Sage 300 “spreads”.
