Can't suppress currency symbol

98 Views Last edit Sep 19, 2017 at 02:14 PM 2 rev

We are currently in the process of upgrading from Crystal Reports XI (R1 SP1) to SAP Crystal Reports 2016 and wil have to move from OLE DB to ODBC connections in the same process.

Now when I open our old reports in CR 2016 Developer and set the new db connection, I can display the preview and everything works fine.

But when I run our application and the Redistributable Runtime renders the report, I get currency symbols on all our numbers that are stored in a money format on the db.

It never used to do that before and can't seem to disable it.
Format Field gives me the option to hide the currency symbol, but that's already unchecked and, I mean, it already works in the developer preview...

Is there something I am missing?
Or will this just not work and I have to go into every single report, and change every single currency field to a type conversion formula field?
