Last updated on OCTOBER 17, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.51 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The PO Dispatch BIP Reports or other RTF template reports do not produce currency (Dollar signs) or separators (Commas) on the PO Dispatch output reports.

Open these RTF templates using MS Word with the appropriate BIP Desktop Plugin installed

Double-click the specific fields > Form Field Options and see that these fields are formatted as Number.

Even setting the format in MS Word with a currency format  $#,##0.00;($#,##0.00), does not produce the currency or separators.

The output still shows the field without the currency and separators.
