      We want to add multi-currency symbols for  Dynamics GP 2015R2 

      Rupee is: ?          Peso is: ?

        How do you add these to Great Plains as  the symbols do not seem to copy over to the currency symbol field.

      Hi David,
      Where do you want those currency symbols show up ? in reports ? on the screen ?
      Remember that GP doesn’t deal with extended character sets and is limited to the standard ANSII, not supporting doube-byte enconding, which is probably the case to display those strange symbols you’re mentioning.. Check this forum thread :

      Ask Dr Google how to “change currency settings” in windows.
      Try that, for some things Great Plains uses the windows settings.
