The fields that hold a currency have been formated to display $s.

To change this, you will need to go into the design view for each of the below tables in the database, click on the field that is a currency and in the field properties at the bottom, change the format from $s to your desired currency.
- Assets x 3
- Depreciation x 1
- Maintenance x 1

This will change the currency shown in the tables, however the fields on the forms have also been formated to show $s. In a similar way to the above, you will have to open the forms which display a currency in design view, then bring up the properties for the currency field (right click on it and select properties) and under the Format tab, Replace the $s with your currency next to the Format heading.
