Setting the Default Currency

The Registry application System::Configuration::Currencies node enables you to configure the default currency, the currencies available within the application modules, and the exchange rates between these currencies and the default currency.

The node name for the currency should be the three character currency code (e.g. EUR for EURO). This code will be used when users are entering values in a currency different from your default currency. For a full list of currency codes, refer to ISO 4217 Currency Codes.

The currency symbol and number formatting that is displayed is based on the system locale. It is still possible to enter a currency value with the currency suffix and AudienceView will return the value based on the exchange rate in the Registry (e.g. 20.00 USD). When the currency symbol is ambiguous more information will be added to the output. For example, if the system locale is en_US but the system currency is CAD, the $ symbol can be confusing to users. In this instance, the currency symbol will be prefixed with CA (i.e. CA$ to indicate that you are operating in Canadian dollars).

To set your default currency, complete the following:

  1. Open the Registry application from the AudienceView Desktop.
  2. Navigate to the System::Configuration::Currencies node.
  3. Enter the default currency’s three letter code in the default currency field.
    For a full list of currency codes, refer to ISO 4217 Currency Codes.
  4. Click 'Apply'.
    A window confirms that the application updated the Registry.
  5. Click 'OK'.
