Hi,drnadeem

Do you see this $ symbol in DataBase Desktop interface or in your application ?

- If you see it in Database desktop, no matter : it's just single character to specify 'MONEY' field.

- If you see It in your application, it means that Windows has to be corrcetly setted up. go to:
 <start menu><parameters>
then in the parameters window, choose regilnal parameters (something like this, with an earth as standard icon), In this wondow you will be abble to change your money symbol.

regards
