Currency Rate Update

Import exchange rates from the Internet.

The module is able to use the following sources:

  1. Updated daily, source in CHF.
  2. European Central Bank (ported by Grzegorz Grzelak - The reference rates are based on the regular daily query procedure between central banks within and outside the European System of Central Banks, which normally takes place at 2.15 p.m. (14:15) ECB time. Source in EUR.
  3. Yahoo Finance Updated daily
  4. Polish National Bank (Narodowy Bank Polski) (by Grzegorz Grzelak - Takes official rates from Adds rate table symbol in log. You should check when rates should apply to bookkeeping. If next day you should change the update hour in schedule settings because in Odoo they apply from date of update (date - no hours).
  5. Banxico for USD & MXN (created by Agustín Cruz) Updated daily
  6. Bank of Canada - Daily average rates (by Daniel Dico - OERP Canada) Using RSS feeds from: Updated daily (except weekends and holidays).
  7. National Bank of Romania (Banca Nationala a Romaniei)


The update can be set under the company form. You can set for each services which currency you want to update. The logs of the update are visible under the service note. You can active or deactivate the update. The module uses internal ir-cron feature from Odoo, so the job is launched once the server starts if the 'first execute date' is before the current day.


The module supports multi-company currency in two ways:

  • when currencies are shared, you can set currency update only on one company
  • when currencies are separated, you can set currency on every company separately

A function field lets you know your currency configuration.

If in multi-company mode, the base currency will be the first company's currency found in database.

Installs for v8.0 if .zip used
by on

I was able to install for v8.0 by extracting the .zip and placing in the main addons directory. The Yahoo Finance service downloads an empty CSV, which is probably not the fault of the module. The ECB and Admin.CH services seem to download data, but the rates are not updated.

Unable to install

I downloaded the v8 and v9 versions of this module from the Git repository and tried to install on my self-hosted Odoo instances using the command -i currency_rate_update -u base -d -c I have addons_path in my config file set to: addons_path = /opt/odoo9/odoo9/addons,/opt/odoo9/odoo9/localaddons,/opt/odoo9/odoo9/localaddons/account-financial-tools I get this message in the logs: WARNING openerp.modules.loading: invalid module names, ignored: currency_rate_update and the module is not installed. Does anyone know what I need to do to get this module installed? Thanks.
