          Sounds like simple math/Lingo.

          Set the float in your startMovie script

          the floatPrecision = (? how many decimal places you want to calc to)

          Then do a calculation script.

          on mouseDown

          P = integer(member("pounds').text)
          D = float(P * (?D rate change))
          E = float(P * (?E rate change))
          ...so on

          member("dollars").text = string(D)
          member("euros").text =string(E)
          ...so on


          Try that!
