          Hi,

           

          You can create a variable with currency rate or currency

          And then use that variable in extension.

           

          For this purpose you can useQlik Branch extension.

          User can select currency from available buttons and according to selection value will change..

           

          I hope this is helpful.

            Have a currency master table with your base currency to other currency conversion rates,

             

            Like this

             

            Effective From | Effective To | AUD | USD | GBP | SGD | INR | etc

             

            as mentioned by shraddha.g use the qsVariable extension and create a Variable "vCurrency" and select the option of combo and add all the currencies with value & label (like 1: USD, 2:AUD,etc ) into the extension.

             

            When user selects currency in combo the variable will get values assigned like 1,2,3,4,etc based on currency,

             

            In your chart expression use like Base_Currency_Value * pick(match($(vCurrency),'1','2','3'... etc),USD,AUD,...etc)

             

            In case if you want to include the effective date also in the calculation use if statements and compare with tran_date

            Or join this currency master table to transaction table in the load script itself ( tran_date between eff_from and eff_to )

             

            Hope this helps,

             

            Thanks,

            Lakshmikandh
