    Having been a DOS Accounts Software Programmer for many years
    now, I and many others don't bother to indicate the Currency
    money values are entered in, assumed to be "£" in the U.K.

    Another work-around I sometimes use in "£" vs "$" transaction
    entries is to head the columns, indicating the Currency involved.

    You could design your data input screens and reports headed thus:

    £ | Euro |
    ~~~~~|~~~~~|
    100.00 | 163.00 |

    The above does not look like the way I entered it ! The Forum
    Formatter does not recognise "Spaces" nor CHR$(255). I am sure
    you got the idea

    I personally do not like every money value prefixed with a
    Currency symbol, neither do my clients ! Gives operators reading
    values on small point-of-sales monitors a headache

    Don't forget the ASCII table in the on-line help, or in the back of the Reference Guide.

    To display the 256 CHR$ on screen with PB35 :

    COLOR 7,0:CLS
    FOR K = 0 TO 255
    COLOR 0,2
    ' you can use any color
    PRINT RIGHT$(" "+STR$(K),3);
    COLOR 7,0
    PRINT " ";CHR$(K);" ";
    IF (K+1) MOD 12=0 THEN PRINT
    NEXT K

    For Vertical :

    FOR I = 0 TO 21
    FOR J = 0 TO 11
    K = I+(J*22)
    IF K<256 THEN PRINT RIGHT$(" "+STR$(K),3);" ";CHR$(K);" ";
    NEXT J:PRINT
    NEXT I

    Regards
