That's strange, the field data type is currency, it is not just a numeric field being used as a currency field, and still no dollar sign? Is there anything I could check (to make sure it is set right) that you know of that might correct this problem?

I am using just Arial, it has the dollar sign, also, the decimel point does not print either??? I have it setup to have up to 7 places to the left of the decimal point and 2 after, so it should be printing the decimal point too?
I think it might just be some little box that is/is not checked somewhere, or something like that.
Has anyone out there ever had this problem?

Just a follow up - I right clicked on the field in the report template and hit properties, it all looked ok, and was set as a currency field, but it still would not show the dollar sign or the decimal point in a report.
I then went back and right clicked on it again in the report template and on the Data tab, under the "Field Type" it was set to "detail", so I changed it to "Summary" and then the lower section titled "Summary Field Options" opened up, I then selected "Total". Now the dollar sign and decimal point both show up in a report.
The only thing I am worried now about is if you are printing a report for several contacts, will that field show the dollar amount for each contact, or will it now total the amounts in that field for all the records I am printing a report for (in the report template it shows "SUM" right before the field)? If this is what it will do, what should I set it on? The choices under "Summary Field Options" are: "Count", "Total", "Average", "Minimum", and "Maximum.
I would check this but only have a couple of records in the db right now, until I start working with it every day.
Again, any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the reply again Roy, don't take this the wrong way, but isn't this a regular program, that when a box is checked, it does a specific thing, you can then expect that that specific thing will then happen, or work that way if you check that box?
I mean, those selection choices do something, how could it be that it could do one thing here and another thing on another computer? I am a registered paying customer of this program, and there is so little help and documentation, that you really have to just "play" with everything until it does what you wanted it to, that is not the way a program should work! And "Sage" or whatever company that sells this product should probably put out BETTER help files with their programs and not leave everything so vague that you then have to go to forums to find the answers you need!
Geeeeeezzzzz, I can't wait until I get to the point of "trying" to setup sync! oh my god, what headaches are in store for me when I get to that, and having to use a VPN, why couldn't they leave in email sync?!?!?!?!!
Whatever, I guess I bought a "buggy" program, my fault!
