How to add specific currency symbol?
Hello,
I am trying to automate a smartsheet and I have done everything to this point, and have run into a problem. I have a PDF that needs to have money in it and it could be in any currency. so it could be $10,000 or ¥10,000, etc. But it doesn't fill the PDF with the money symbol and only the amount. It also doesn't add the "," where needed depending on amount which can be between the amount of 1,000999,999. I know there is probably a formula i can use and i will most likely need helper rows but i am lost on how to create such formula and what is needed. So i need the money symbol with the ability to change to the correct currency and the "," to be placed correctly.
This is how it looks on smartsheet vs how it generates into the PDF.
(¥10,000.00 > 10000) or (€100,000.00 > 100000)
The cent isn't nessacary.

You have two options. You can use a nested IF statement to output, or (since it seems like you need quite a few), you can create a table that has the text in one column and the symbol in another column and use an INDEX/MATCH.
Here is a list of the UNICHAR currency symbols (it may be easier if you are able to type them or copy/paste from somewhere  whichever you prefer):

How are you currently populating the sheet with the different currencies?

Currently I have it as a text field where they can use a form to enter in the amount. But in most cases someone not from the country's currency is filling it out so unless they look up the symbol each time then it wont work. also when trying to do it manually it covert's back to just the number when generating the PDF.
I haven't had anyone use it yet as I just created the sheet.

My suggestion would be a dropdown to select the currency and then a separate field for the amount.
Then in the sheet you can use a nested IF statement to output the proper currency symbol. Here is an example where I needed either Euros or Dollars:
IF(Currency@row = "Euro", UNICHAR(8364), "$")
Then you can use this to convert the number into a text string with commas in place out to 999,999,999,999.
IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 3, RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 6, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 9, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  8, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  6)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 12, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  11, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  9)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  8, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  6)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3))))))
"Adding" the two formulas together will give you a text string that has the currency symbol as well as the numbers with commas in place. Since it is being stored as a text string instead of a number, it should populate your PDF correctly.
=currency_IF + comma_formula
=IF(Currency@row = "Euro", UNICHAR(8364), "$") + IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 3, RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 6, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 9, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  8, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  6)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3), IF(LEN([Column2]@row) <= 12, IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  11, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  9)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  8, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  6)), "") + "," + IFERROR(IFERROR(MID([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  5, 3), LEFT([Column2]@row, LEN([Column2]@row)  3)), "") + "," + RIGHT([Column2]@row, 3))))))

Wow it works great thank you! One more question... how do I make the formula for not just USD and euro but for (Germany, Mexico, United, States, Italy, China, India, Belgium, United, Kingdom, Colombia, Canada, Brazil, Hungary, Lithuania, Thailand, Argentina, Ecuador, Spain, South, Africa, France, Sweden, Australia, Korea, Norway, Netherlands, Ireland, New, Zealand, Finland, Turkey, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, Denmark, Taiwan) Is there a website I can use I saw you entered UNICHAR(8364) for euro to get the symbol. How would i set the formula to check everything and choose the right one?
