Can't display Japanese currency symbol (¥)in PDF output of smartforms

Hi Experts,

I am developing a couple of smartforms & one of the requirements is to display Yen ( ¥ ) symbol before displaying the total amount.

In print preview it is displaying properly, but if i download this form into Pdf then it shows as #.

Kindly suggest me how display this symbol in PDF.

Thanks in advance,

Lucy

    Hi All,

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    I would like to share how I solved this issue.

    Hope this helps others facing the same issue.

    Go to the below link and copy the Yen symbol available here.(If you look closely, it is a bit different from the ones we type using our keyboard.)

    Type euro symbol, pound symbol, cent symbol, yen symbol, and other currency symbols online

    Now set this symbol to a variable like:

    GV_YEN = '¥'.

    Finally, just input this variable in the text editor instead of directly typing/pasting this symbol.

    &GV_YEN&&GV_AMOUNT&

    Best Regards,

    Lucy

    Hello,

    Goto your text Editor and go to change editor -> now where you have placed Yen ( ¥ ), remove this text .

    From above Menu bar you can find the INSERT ->CHARACTERS -> DISPLAY CHARACTERS .

    Select Yen ( ¥ ) form there

    Hope this will solve your problem .

    Stay Awesome

    Hello Lucy,

    I think you can try cascading font device type SWINCF or PDFUC if the system is Unicode system.
    See SAP note 812821.
