  • The Number Format setting applies in view mode, or when the values are displayed in a Web Page View, Report, MS Word Merge, List View, etc.
  • Currency formatting will be applied when the record is in edit mode only if the setting "Apply Format in Edit Mode" is selected in the custom field settings.
  • Any currency defined by ISO 4217 can be shown by using the appropriate three-letter currency code. For example, if Currency-JPY (for Japanese Yen) is entered into the Number Format setting, the entered value of 12 will be displayed as ¥12.

Important: in edit mode you must use a period (.) as the decimal, even if the currency defined uses a comma (,).
