Hi there,

How do you display the currency symbol?

Usually, the "locale" determines the currency symbol. You'll need to switch the locale so it uses a £ instead of the $.

Search Google for "Session.LCID" AND currency and you'll get plenty of info.

Personally, I prefer to store currencies as normal numbers, and add a currency column to my table to keep track of the currency. I am not too happy with letting ASP or the database determine the currency symbol.

Cheers,

Imar
