How to replace GBP with EUR on a Sage invoice

How to replace GBP with EUR on a Sage invoice

I am using a Financial Controller version of Sage (albeit one that is 3 or 4 years' old). I am using multicurrency and have set up a customer to be invoiced in Euros. All works fine on the currency translation and hence the accounting / bookeeping side but I cant see how to change the presentation of the invoice in Report Designer so that an EUR symbol appears rather than a GBP one. Can anyone help, please?

I think....
You have to design one in report designer, it should be easy and you can copy your GPB invoice just amending the currency signs.

Possible
It should be possible to add an expression to the layout to automatically pick up the currency symbol depending on the currency from the customer account but ths would depend on the exact version of Sage being used...

Why replace when you can print?

Why are you worrying about replacing the £sign with a Euro sign?

Why not just print the invoice using one of the many EURO invoices? if you havent got these i'm sure you can download them from the sage website

One advantage is that you don't have to select different layouts, you can print all the invoices in a single run regardless of currency.  Assuming that a recent version of Sage is being used, it is a simple task to get the symbol to change dynamically...

I agree that if you are going to run them all off as one batch this would be the ay to go - but it seems that it is only this one customer. If e knew what version of Sage he was using it would make things a lot easier to help.
