The -2006 office printing calculator is an unusual design. It combines an outstanding 14.digit calculating capability with an Euro currency conversion and a convenient tax function. All of the 11 yet defined exchange rates are preprogrammed in the calculator, 4 additional ones could be added later. The home country is selected with the Select-key. Two additional keys allow the conversion in both directions.
