unfortunately non of the codes I copy from any website gives me an "(" error which seems to be required before the <script statement
I googled live forex ticker websites, quite a few with codes to be copies, as the ttps://www.realtimeforex.com/widgets/forex-web-ticker/ which you supplied.
not familiar with the scrolling marquee so i dumped that on for now. so currently I am looking at the web browser option. Your website is not quite what i am looking for. i would like to just have the running bar if possible but keep in getting the bracket error

can you make a sample that actually work, without going to your site.
It would be even better to be able to load the HTML script & run it direct in Access without referencing a web page. I haven't looked into this as yet
Four choices for you
1. Gasman has already pointed you to my scrolling marquee text which will get the effect you want.
As for the data, you will need to find a site which gives an XML or JSON output which you can then import and parse to update your display at set intervals of your choice.
2. The alternative of using a web browser control has the advantage of being updated automatically. So if you can find a suitable forex ticker site, just use that.
3. If you have a website you can add your own forex ticker widget. See https://www.realtimeforex.com/widgets/forex-web-ticker/
You would then use your webpage in the web browser control.
4. For a completely different approach look at my free Currency Exchange Rate Tracker app available from http://www.mendipdatasystems.co.uk/cert/4594365453
