Add a currency variable
A currency value represents monetary values. It has two properties:
- The currency property is a decimal value or the value NOT_SET
- The string property is a string that holds either a 3-character ISO 4217 code
For example, the following expression is valid at runtime:
This expression evaluates to a currency value with an amount of 10.50 and currency code of ‘USD’.
Obtaining the symbol for a currency
There is no “Symbol” property for a currency. However, you can use an expression to return the correct currency symbol:
This expression returns $.
