Currency Symbol Removal

Is there a way to remove the currency symbol at Default level from all Documents and Reports. I have GBP in front of all amounts in all Screen forms and reports and I would prefer not to have this because it takes up space on the screen and is not neccessary.

If the answer is negative to the above question, then can I replace the GBP to the £ sign

Thank you

Robert

    Robert,

    Your options are available in Administration > Setup > Financials > Currencies

    Also, optionally you can choose to display the symbol on the right

    Administration > System Initialization > General Settings > Display

    Robert, you can also use the ToNumber formula in the PLD to suppress the currency symbol from being printed all over the PLD document.

    Because SAP B1 is foreign currency enabled, its very important to show the currency symbol on every transaction field to reduce the number of data entry errors.

      Thanks Davinder

      My main requirement is a visual one on the screen and the PLD options of "removing" the currency do not help with this.

      You are saying that SAP is foreign currency enabled programme so you need to see the currency displayed - are you really saying that you want to see this a few hudred times in an invoice or in a document, since SAP repeats this symbol against every transaction shown in every column? In any case all I am saying is that this should be an option and not a default. In my view displaying the Currency once in a document is enough and there is no need to "repeat the obvious"
