    Trying to create a spreadsheet that converts both directions - Pesos to dollars or dollars to pesos; my formulas are "at war" with one another. I tried IF/THEN formulas as well as the $column$row*cell value approach.
    Scenario is that we purchase materials in both MX and US for projects and will be entering both currencies into the sheet. Help!
    Thanks-

    [wiki]How do I convert Sri Lankan Rupees (Rs) into Australian dollars using Excel?[/wiki]

      Fairly simple math issue.
      First, you need to know the exchange rate for the two currencies. Today (August 3, 2015, the Fx is 1 LKR = 0.0102975 AUD. If you want to convert Sri Lankan Rupees into Australian Dollars, you would divide the number of rupees you have by .012975. Since that might end up with a number of decimal places, you might round it so that it ends up with just two.

      I would set up a worksheet that shows, in cell A1, the conversion rate - so A1 would equal ..0102975.
      Then I would set up A2 to contain the number of Sri Lankan rupees I want to convert, say, 1,000.

      In cell A3, I would put the formula to divide the Sri Lankan Rupees into Aussie dollars and round the results to the closest 2nd decimal. But rather than "hard wire" the conversion rate into the formula, I would reference the conversion rate I just put in Cell A1. That way, if I want to change the conversion rate next week, I don't have to edit a formula - I just change the conversion rate.

      So the cell A3 would read (without quotes) "=round(A2/A1,2)"

      You could label each cell with the intended contents by placing the text labels in cells B1, B2, and B3. And you could use the currency formatting for cells A2 and A3 to properly reflect that they are Sri Lankan and Australian currencies.

      Hope this helps.

    I have over 60 medical bills in Euros that I need to convert to dollars at the exchange rate on the the differing dates of service since 06/30/2013. It appears the conversion function in Kutools does not allow one to specify the date for conversion. Am I missing something?

      Have you considered using, instead, a lookup table that would do this? There are a number of sources of historical currency fx rates which you could download and input into a table.

      If you have the dates in ascending order in column A and the exchange rate in column b, your vlookup formula could use the date, get the exchange rate, then apply that against your medical bill amount. I'd add a ROUND function to get rid of anything past the second decimal, and add a True False switch at the end to ensure that you don't apply an incorrect Fx amount to a date which doesn't exist in your table.

      If this is all a complete mystery, comment back and I'll try to explain it better.
