I am aware of the following money formatting.

$#,##0.00;($#,##0.00);"Zero";"Null"

I am printing a check and need the amount field to be preceded by (leading) either asterisks or dollar signs on the amount field that will move in and out depending on the amount.

Like:

****1,000.00
******100.00
and so on.

Can anyone help ?

You can use an expression to create the field.

right("**********" & format(fieldname, 0.00),10)
