Accounting Number Format for Analysis Services

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

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. :)
