If you ask me, and you haven't... You people are nit-picking. The ease with which you can access any part of a function from one or two screens far outweighs any faults with the interface.

PRO IV finally did something right!

In Topic: Currency Fields

Not really Chris... I wrote a global routine that accepts a number and currency format as input and returns an alpha string formated as requested... ie, currency symbol, leading sign, trailing sign, parens or the 'CR' tag. It's pretty slick actually.

My post was in refernece to having to do that. I can't beleive Pro IV doesn't make it easier than this. With VIP it's supposed to be a RAD tool and with most RAD tools you just have you indicate a report field is currency and specify a negative number format.

So... I just wanted to be sure there wasn't something I didn't know about. But it looks like there isn't.

Thanks for your interest...

Rob... that's not really documentation. It's just a bunch of lame questions with answers.

I would hardly call what they have listed there for VIP a manual.

Chris.... not with the currency symbol and +/- indicator. That's my point. I'm working on an invoice and the user wants to see the currency symbol. There is no way to have a negative currency amount with the $ and - characters floating.
