Access Form format text box as Euro Currency


I would like to format a text box on a Microsoft Access form as Euro Currency. I can see how to change
the format to "Currency" that is then affected by the regional settings on a user's PC but I want to
specifically format the text box as Euro currency only.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There should be a Euro option for the Format property of the textbox and/or the field which will override regional settings.

Do you not get that?
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Set the Format property to: € 0.00  (or: € 0,00 if comma is your decimal separator)
Set the DecimalCount to: 2
