Catalog table

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

We recommend that you specify the value from the catalog you are using in the Value field (for example if you live in Canada and are using the Stanley Gibbons catalog, you should specify the value in British pounds). StampCAT then uses the exchange rate for the currency used in the catalog when updating the Calculated Value (Canadian dollars in this example). When the exchange rate changes, you just modify the exchange rate for the catalog. The calculated value is then updated for all stamps in the database linked to this catalog. Always specify Price in your own currency.
