Foreign Currencies

I use Money 2003 and make transactions in GBP and EUR and ocassionally in
USD.
I never make use of Chilian Peso, the Morrocan dirham or any of the obsolete
Eurozone currencies. I'fd like to slick up the F8 process, however if I try
to delete currencies using Tools-Options-Currencies Money resists. Given
that you can always add currencies in, is there any way to get rid of the
all the redundant ones?

I think you can only delete currencies you've added (even though the delete
button is clickable for all currencies). The overhead is pretty low for
downloading currencies, so my personal thought is not to worry about it.

You can deselect so that they don't update the rates - or am I missing
something here ?

Yes you are missing the point.
Assume your default currency is GBP but you want to enter a transaction in
EUR. E.g when you make a cashpoint withdrawal from your UK bank in Europe.
Now count the number of keystrokes /mouse clicks to switch currency. I make
it eight including scrolling though a list of all of the currencies which
start with the letters B,C,D,E.
I suggested to Microsoft that they should make the F8 key bring up the last
foreign currency used initially, so that if you are entering a few
transactions say from one trip, you only have to find the currency once.

When I make a cashpoint withdrawal in Europe [in Frankfurt most weeks], I
transfer from the UK Bank to a Euro Cash Account and as the Cash Account is
in Euros, the Money application senses this and the only currency screen I
get is GBP/EUR. Hardly any more keystrokes than an ATM withdrawal to cash
in the UK.

Though if you press the E key when you get to the list of currencies you
will be positioned at the first currency beginning with E. Might save
you two keystrokes :)

OK. That sounds clever!
I think I've got it. I've never used a cash account before, so I'll give it
a go!
Thanks
