Hi! Just an update on this, there is another solution or workaround that might help you when it comes to formatting text or editable fields in currency. This is by using a JavaScript library that creates an input mask. For more information, you may check these links:
- https://github.com/RobinHerbots/Inputmask
- https://robinherbots.github.io/Inputmask/

As a test, here is a sample code when applied in a DataPage.

Header:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery.inputmask/5.0.7/jquery.inputmask.min.js"></script>

Footer:

<script>

document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

$("#EditRecordFIELDNAME").inputmask({ alias : "currency", prefix: '$ ' });
$("#EditRecordFIELDNAME").inputmask({ alias : "currency", prefix: '$ ' });

});

</script>

Hope it helps!

Hi @dmyoungsal,

 

I understand that you want to display the field AmtPaid as currency on your DataPage. You can go to your Report DataPage > Configure Results Page Fields. 

You can customize your field based on your desired display. However, you cannot change it on your submission form.

Hi Kristina,

Why don't i have access to the formatting option? (See Below)
I have the same need. The Table field is set to currency, by the Data Form converts that field to text.

Tks, Stephen

Hi @Pearcey, it looks like you are using a submission form so it is expected that the formatting option is not available. The formatting options are only available in Report or Details DataPage (https://howto.caspio.com/datapages/datapage-components/field-formatting-options/) since you already have the value that can be formatted. The currency field data type is also displayed as text field in the submission form because it is an input field .

@Pearcey, if you would like to display a dollar sign or any currency sign in your currency field upon inputting a value, then you can use this solution provided by Meekee, Just change the 'EditRecordFIELDNAME' with 'InsertRecordFIELDNAME' since you are using a submission form.

Hi @Pearcey, what type of datapage are you using? Is it Submission or Report? The one used by Kristina is a Report DataPage. What output do you want to achieve?

Hi Potato,  I'm using a Submission form to collect typical family cost (e.g. £100 on shopping etc.) which then totals up to a budget page to help people budget etc
