Hi,

You can use Derived Column and convert the Money to Varchar and Concatenate it with $ Symbol

Expression will be like this "$ " + (DT_STR,10,1252)MoneyColumn

run ok but ouput in text file did not change.  I want 5 leading spaces after the $   sign
like $      9877.21 .  I added derived column but still gets 9877.21.   I replaced the column name price in the derived column

Hi,

Replace for id column will not work since id column in not varchar and the output of derived column is varchar.

and for spaces you can add space near the $ sign

"$     " + (DT_STR,10,1252)id
