Use the currency calculator

How do I open the currency calculator?

Go to the Company menu, click Manage Currency, and then click Currency Calculator.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + C to open the currency calculator from within QuickBooks.

To do this task

  1. Select the value you'd like to calculate in the Calculate field. Once the value is selected, the field for the value you select is highlighted in yellow.

  2. Enter the two known amounts in the two available fields.
    For example
    If you select to calculate a Home Amount, enter the exchange rate and foreign amount.

    Note: When calculating exchange rates, you may see a small difference between the exchange rate QuickBooks calculated on a transaction and the amount calculated by the currency calculator. This is normal and is the result of rounding.

  3. Click the Copy button if you want QuickBooks to temporarily store the calculated value.
    To paste the value in a QuickBooks transaction (or in an application outside of QuickBooks), click to select the field where you want the value copied to, go to the Edit menu, and then click Paste.
