How to left align an Arabic currency symbol?


  • I'm trying to make a report for CRM 2011. In one column I'm displaying a currency amount with its currency symbol (on the left side) with  something like:

    Fields!currencysymbol.Value & " " & Fields!amount.Value

    Everything is alright when retrieving amounts with western currencies which looks like:

    $ 1234

    But the problem is when retrieving amounts with arabic currencies which looks like:

    1234 درهم

    Is there any way to display the arabic currency symbol on the left just like the western currencies? (whether SSRS level or SQL level, etc)

    Thank you

  • Go to the textbox of the column and click on Properties-> Go to Numbers->Under Category Select 'Default'. Retain the expression that you are using to that textbox. Looks like you are deriving both symbol and value from your dataset.

    The reason it is currently getting displayed the way it is because of the textbox property set to Category Currency and it is overriding the expression.
