fx360 Rate File

The Rate File (RF) contains the schedule of exchange rates you have requested. The rates are quoted against  your company’s established base currency and quotation method. The RF is generated if the service is enabled based on your preferences in the fx360 User Configuration Form. The format of the RF will depend upon the template created and chosen your company.
