The quotes are delayed by about 15 or 20 minutes but are updated every minute or so. Everything is automated in VBA. The VBA can be viewed and modified. All you have to do is type in two three-letter currency codes, and click a button you can find a list of currency codes here.
The VBA then downloads the the most recent foreign exchange rates from Yahoo into Excel, using a query table. Clicking the button again refreshes the quotes with the most recent values. In the External Data Range Properties menu, place a check in the Refresh every option, and pick an update time you can only choose an integer number of minutes.

I cannot research or anything so I rely on people that work hard to provide me something of great value for absolutely nothing, out of the goodness of their hearts and with no effort on my part.
