    Currency Conversion Service

    I am an ASP (Classic) developer and am in need of a service where I can interactively determine the rate of exchange between two currencies. I would like to program my site so that the visitor chooses his/her currency and the prices I display are presented in the currency of the visitors choice.

    If anyone can assist with advice I would appreciate it.

    The European Central Bank has a reliable service just to do that.

    The XML-file is updated daily, so I'd suggest you cache the results for 24h:

    Here's some more information about the service:

    hexburner,

    Many thanx for that. It is exactly what I need.

    All I need now is an example of how to use the xml file in ASP. I have not worked with xml before so if someone can give me some advise I will be very grateful.
