Same calculations with other currencies:
If you want to see Total price in USD. For Invoice A, B and C the exchange rates will be set from the day when invoice was generated (EUR - 0.5, DZD - 0.25 and ALL - 0.75).

This allows nice Address formatting without leaving spaces if some Address data is not defined in User's settings.
