Get Exchange rates

I stumbled on a post about getting Exchange rates from a bank, from an online XML file.. So I thought I would try that with a local bank, I figured out the Danish national bank, has an XML file online with the current rates…

[sourcecode lang=”PosH”]
#Get Exchange Rates from The Danish National Bank
$wc = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
$rates = [xml]$wc.DownloadString(“http://www.nationalbanken.dk/dndk/valuta.nsf/valuta.xml”)
$MonCode = @{Name=”ValutaKode”;Expression = {$_.Code}}
$Description = @{Name=”Valuta”;Expression = {“100 ” + $_.desc + ” = “}}
$Kurs = @{Name=”Kurs”;Expression = {$_.Rate + ” KR”}}
$rates.exchangerates.dailyrates.currency | Select-Object $MonCode,$Description,$Kurs | ft -AutoSize

[/sourcecode]

Another option would be to use Out-Gridview as well, then you would get the result in a GUI form, instead of in the command prompt
