Crystal Reports displaying wrong currency symbol on Client's Web Site.

Posted on 2008-11-14

I have a 2.0 invoicing application I wrote for a client 2 years ago.

There has never been a problem with any of the Crystal Report pages until the client upgraded his web server (MS Server 2003)a couple of months ago.

After the upgrade all reports which show a '£' symbol now show a '$' symbol.  These reports all display correctly on my development PC (Win XP, VS2006 and CR Developer 11.5.

I now have to remember to hard code the '£' in the Currency Symbol custom format field before uploading any report to the server.

I've checked the regional settings on the server and they are all set correctly to English - United Kingdom.

Also the web.config file has a globalization culture="en-GB" uiCulture="en-GB"  line.

Is there any other config setting in Crystal for currency symbol settings.


There is only Crystal Merge Modules installed on the server

    Are the regional language options set correctly on the machine the reports are displayin on?

    (probably a wild guess but....)

    This has been asked several times and it seems to not work in Crystal.

    Verify the client machine is set correctly.
