I am working on developing dashboards/stories using SAP BOC tool.

I am trying to create a basic analytical model and a story on top of it , in which currency symbol ($) needs to be displayed after the value for a measure.
But , unable to do so.

In the model , default currency is set as USD and defined the "Units&Currency" of the measure as "Currency" in Account dimension.

Attached the screenshot : screenshot.png
Could you please help me out to handle this scenario.
This is really important for me.
Expecting an early response for this mail.

Thanks in advance

Hi Arjun,

This is the default behaviour. When there is only one currency in your model, the currency is displayed in the label. I can see that in your screenshot (in USD). Only when you have currency conversion in your model or you use two models with different currencies, we display the currency character in the cell.

If you want to add the possibility of displaying the $ character along with the number, I would recommend you to add the idea to the Idea Place:

When you do it, feel free to post the Idea number here. If more people are interested, they can vote for it.

Hi Arjun,

Currently you do not have an option to display currency symbol followed by keyfigure value....however you can display currency at overall chart level by default..Please refer my screen shot.

Also if you want to change the currency values can go in to model and----click preferences and change the default currency from USD to other currency. you can refer second screen shot.
