Can't change the currency symbol in Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are facing the same known issue regarding the currency symbol.

    We did the following:

    1. Changed the currency in the server from '$' to 'SAR'.

    2. Configured the server to "Enforce that projects are published in the server currency".

    The problem is that in all projects the currency symbol is shown "ر.س.".

    I've read many discussions about the same issue, but didn't find a solution.

    Please if anyone has a solution or have an Access Id to contact Microsoft Support so that they make a fix to that.

  • Hi Mohamed !

    You may chose you currency format (rendering symbols) in Regional Settings for PWA site collection.

    1) Go to your PWA site

    2) On top-left click "SiteActions"

    3) Choose Site Settings. -> SiteSettings page opens

    4) Click on Regional Settings. -> On top you would see "language" settings

    5) play with it by chosing appropriate language.

    But if you do not find appropriate currency fromat (like SAR in your example) I fail to help you. 

    How to change relationship between SAR and "ر.س." ,  -  It is question to Sharepoint developers or to Microsoft. Probably it can be changed inside Sharepoint world.

    Note:   - when you choose SAR in Project Pro or in "Enforce that projects are published in the server  currency" menu - sharepoint shows corresponing to "SAR" currency sybmol   "ر.س.", As I see the relation is programmed by Microsoft inside Sharepoint)  

    Hope this helps a little..
