Get currency of cell (with number formating) in Google Sheets. Copy that macros to tools > script editor... and save. Then use it by =getCurrency(A1, ROW(A1), COLUMN(A1) ). For example, if you know currency of cell, you can use google finance api from your sheets by =C7(Cell with value) * GoogleFinance(CONCATENATE("CURRENCY:", K7(cell with currency), "RUB"))
