Step 5:
Check the “Enable Currency Symbol” check box.

There are two options as Fixed & Floating:

  • Fixed: When we choose this option, it leaves extra space between the currency symbol and the value if the field is justified to the right.
  • Floating: When we choose this option, it never leaves any extra spaces between the currency symbol and the amount.

Step 6:
Click on the formula button to the right of “Currency Symbol” and enter a formula like this:

If {myTable.CurrencyType} = “USD” then “$” else …(one if for each symbol) as per below screenshot:
