The CUR program allows the user to add/edit and delete currencies within the system.

On initially entering the program all the currencies in the system are displayed with currency, the current rate of exchange to base currency, the date it was modified, sub-unit and symbol.

For example, if GBP is the base currency and the source currency has a number, such as 1.45554 to GBP the rate of exchange should show "1.45554". This is 1.45554 XYZ's to the GBP.

By default, the program shows you the currencies as of today’s date which means it will display the latest exchange rate for the currencies. This date can be changed to show what an exchange rate was on a particular day.


The other option in the currency section will show rate changes between a specified date range. This will display all rate changes during that period.
