Is it possible to integrate a currency converter in this document, or is there one already integrated? I found the currency part in the inputwizard sheet but the pricing is still in US dollars.

Hi Eivind,

I will contact the owner of the tool and let you know.

The tax feature is not a function that we are able to do at this time for the US.  The tool cannot calculate tax.

I went back and looked at the tool. I now see that the tax line is included to show the customer that no tax has been applied to the quote.

Thank you for the clarification.

The Distributors set the currency conversion rate in their Administrator module. That rate is then applied to the quotes created through them in the tool.

Thai language for Thailand, not supported on QPT, maybe?

  • Cisco Employee,

The issue that Konlayoot had was not related to Win7 but was related to his Thai Regional options. 4D the database tool that is used to develop QPT is not yet compatible with Korean, Hebrew, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. The workaround is to update the Regional Option formats to English.
