:-) :-) :-) (yahoo being yelled at the top of my voice)

I have always used a yahoo finance/portfolio.  I have noticed that
currency screen but never realized/thought that its function was to
convert one currency to another.

I now have a US portfolio and a Canadian.  My holdings are shown in
Canadian Dollars.  I did a rough check comparing the calculations I
made yesterday with todays NEW portfolios results (some prices changed
a few pennies) but it WORKED.

Thanks so much, if I live to be 100 you have saved me roughly 
10 minutes a day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year for the next 41 years
which is 74 days if my math is right?  You freed up two and a half
months for me!

I keep a small hero list and you are now on it.
Thanks for your help Sean.

One teenie weenie itsy bitsy question.  Does Yahoo display/show the
factor/rate it uses to convert US$ to CA$?  I looked around but it
didn't jump out at me.
