How to display EURO Currency symbol in Dynamics GP?

 

Looks an easy question right? Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP menu >> Tools >> Setup >> System >> Currency >> Currency expansion button and select the € symbol!

Well not that’s easy, if you had languages other that the English or your collation for SQL is not Latin you will get the below:

This symbol actually represents the Euro currency symbol, select this symbol and go try to print a report, you will find the symbol there:

Enjoy!

Recovered!

 

Last couple of months, I been very very very much engaged, mainly with the below:

1. Did huge enhancements to my house, it took me around 21 days to finalize.

2. Setup new offices for my Dynamics Innovations www.di.jo, it took years!

3. Upgraded 5 clients to Dynamics GP 2010 and enhanced their environment by implementing Portals, Workflows and Reporting.

4. Went a trip around the Middle East for some clients (Bahrain, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia Jeddah and Makah and finally Syria)

5. Did a big task in reconciling one of my clients inventories to General Ledger along with identifying reasons behind having such a difference which was the nightmare.

6. Answered around 9 RFP’s.

7. Did more than 20 presentations for Microsoft Dynamics GP in my home country, 3 in Lebanon and 1 presentation in Bahrain.

I feel guilty not being an active blogger for the last couple of months, but will make sure to make it up for blog follower in the upcoming days!
