By default, currency with a negative amout will appear in parenthesis. $(54.00) This may not be desirable on your printed output.
This may be changed assuming the following:
1. The data appears as "-54.00" in the input.
2. The amount is stored in a currency field/variable and is being mapped with a "%m" format string
This is what you will need to do to change the formatting:
1. Change the variable type from "currency" to "real" in the definition.
2. Change the format string in the mapping from "%m" to "$%.2n"
Your printed output should now appear as "$-54.00"
