Currency format on a update request form.

05/01/18 Edited 12/09/19

The sheet has numbers with a currency format. When a update request form is generated the currency format does not transfer.

    From one Chris to another, it has always worked (and continues to work) for me.

    In the image below, I've set a number of cells to specific currency formats, then sent an update request, updated the amounts (from 0) and then refreshed the sheet to show the changes.

    The currency symbols are shown in the update form only as a guide. Deleting them does not affect the underlying cell format.

    As you can see, I've left the Yen (¥) symbol in the CAPEX Budget field, but all the others I've overwritten e.g. OPEX Budget is now 5000000 instead of £5000000, yet the underlying cells are still formatted with the original currency formats.

    Kind regards,

    Chris McKay

  • I am also having this same problem as Chris Andersen, and the Currency format assigned in my sheet is NOT appearing in my entry form. I have assigned the $ number format to the entire column, not the cell because each row will need to be in currency format. Any help?

    Hi @BigWaveDave

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!

    The initial value shows with the currency, but not the updated one.

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
