In Excel you can format a number as Accounting which will left align all $ in a column.  Is this possible in Analysis Services?

you can store Analysis Services data for example  as char ($1)
or
Currency

and\or get all this data in Excel  or SSRS in this format

I don't think you can easily have it shown as:
$    10
$   900

I'm pretty sure that's particular to Excel... so I'd be considering NOT using the Currency formatting option in Analysis Services and then applying the dollar sign in whatever client the data is ending up in. It's very easy to do it in Reporting Services, for example - just thrown in an extra column to hold the $, and merge the header nicely. :)
