Does that mean all the manually entered rates can be safely deleted without
affecting the transactions they were created for? As a historical record of
exchange rates they are not very useful because of the way they are recorded
as fractions which doesn't make them very user friendly as a reference so I
certainly wouldn't lose anything by deleting them if they have no effect on
transactions already entered.

Finance Quote would be convenient but having to install XCode just for that
is a bit of a hammer to crack a nut. I may move to monthly, manually entered
rates independent of transactions.
