I have column (B) join collect Items @row.

I have Column (C) join collecting multiple Column (B) items based on unique values.

=JOIN([Cost Center]3:[Rec'd Approval From 2]3, "-")

I would like to have the dollar symbol in Column (A) to be present in columns (B) & (C)

=IF(ISBLANK([unique.invoice]@row), "", JOIN(COLLECT(collect:collect, [Invoice No.]:[Invoice No.], [unique.invoice]@row), CHAR(10)))

    Hi @Bobby1

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You'll have to add the dollar sign as part of the formula to have it included.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    @Andrée Starå Thank you for responding. Looking at the 2 formulas I provided, where would I put the $ sign?

    I have column (B) join collect Items @row.

    I have Column (C) join collecting multiple Column (B) items based on unique values.

    =JOIN([Cost Center]3:[Rec'd Approval From 2]3, "-")

    I would like to have the dollar symbol in Column (A) to be present in columns (B) & (C)

    =IF(ISBLANK([unique.invoice]@row), "", JOIN(COLLECT(collect:collect, [Invoice No.]:[Invoice No.], [unique.invoice]@row), CHAR(10)))

    I have a similar issue. When I use the formula below, the output comes out as a regular number, not currency with the $ symbol. Each "Helper Column" is correctly formatted to show $. And I already ensured the format was set to currency for the output column (SPIFF Amount). Referring to the previous post, where do you add the $ sign?

    Hi @Vera

    Try wrapping the VALUE function around each reference in case any of them are seen as text:

    =VALUE([Helper Column <$5M]@row) + VALUE([Helper Column $5M - $10M]@row) + VALUE([Helper Column >$10M]@row)

    Cheers,

    Genevieve

    I figured out how to add the dollar symbol $ to a JOIN formula and wanted to share.

    My original formula joined all of the cost/unit for the children below the row and has a new line as the delimiter, but the dollar sign was lost:

    =JOIN(CHILDREN(), CHAR(10)

    I was able to fix by adding this: ="$" + JOIN(CHILDREN(), CHAR(10) + "$")

    Just wanted to leave here in case anyone else had the same issue as I did.
