Converting valuta? (e.g. from euro to dollar)

Hey balupad!

Your exchange rate activity is very powerful and probably a must for many people, but how do you convert all the data from an excel file with the column “Price” that contains a STRING of data e.g. “£3300,23”?

I want to convert all the rows from british pund to DKK but i’m not quite sure how to do that.


Hi Balamurugan,
Thx for this package.

However I found a conflict of this package and Studio 2018.2.3

After upgrade to Studio 2018.2.3 I start getting error “Method ‘Newtonsoft.Json.Linq.JToken get_Item(System.String)’ declared on type ‘Newtonsoft.Json.Linq.JObject’ cannot be called with instance of type ‘Newtonsoft.Json.Linq.JObject’” in a workflow using Newtonsoft.Json library. After in-depth investigation I found this library embedded in your package, but in different version (10.0.2). It caused the conflict with system wide installed version 8.0.3. After removing Newtonsoft.Json.dll from your package everything works fine again.



Hi @Ibra,

Sorry for my delay reply. Can you please add the sample excel sheet to test my side. I will attach it with xaml.



Hi @J0ska ,

Thank you for the review. Unfortunately I have upgrade my studio to 2018.3.0-beta.1. It is working in this version. But I will let you after I tested in the 2018.2.3 version.

Thank you
