Right-click and Format Field
On the number tab deselect 'Show Currency Symbol'

You can also just select the format with just decimals or even no decimals and no currency sign.  Hope this helps!

sorry, i forgot to mention mine one is a formula field.

when i right click and Format Field, there is no Number tab.

my formula is as follow :

If IsNull({myTable.myField}) Then " - "
Else CStr({myTable.myField})

but the $ sign still show, how do i write a formula to hide it?

'If IsNull({myTable.myField}) Then " - "
Else CStr({myTable.myField}) '

This assumes there is ALWAYS a currency symbol:

//start
stringvar MyAmount;

myamount:= cstr({myTable.myField})

if isnull({myTable.myField}) then
 "-"
else if len(myamount)= 0 then
 "-"
else
right(myamount,len(myamount)-1)
//end
