Dear Community,


This is an example"technique" file I created for a customer recently that is in the importing business.  A recent topic at our local FMPUG meeting was "webviewers", so I documented this version of the technique in the attached file.


The file's function is to retrieve currency exchange rates from the internet using a publicly available URL.  There are three layouts; Explanation, User, and a reference table layout, Currencies used for a list definition.


I thought I would share it if anyone is interested.  The .fmp12 file is attached.


Let me know if I can be of further service.
