    Looking to be advise: source code help


    Hello all, this is my first post, and I believe this to be an accurate place for which to hopefully find a resolution.

    The problem which I am currently facing, is- at the currency converter from the finance yahoo website, when you go to investing, then click currencies, then click currency converter.

    Towards the top, under top left blue box, where it says "Exchange rate of 0.7611 on 16 April 2012", well I am trying to find the code for that in the page source, so I can find a way to sync the historical closing data of Fridays to microsoft access. I have a several different currencies that I'm trying to do this with.

    Any advice where this tidbit of source code is located would be greatly appreciated.

    The rate data is loaded using JavaScript. If you look through the script tags in the source you'll find it.
