Account details for: ******************** BigDecimal Amount changed to a String for display: 600 Unformated BigDecimal rounded up to two decimal places: = 600.00 Price with Pound Sign: � 600,00 Using NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance: � 600,00 Steven Peter Charlton : Account No: 8945 Balance: 600.00
You will notice the line: Price with Pound Sign is not displaying �600.00 as expected and the line: Using NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance �600.00 as expected
in both lines the full stop is a comma the where I should have a pound sign � I get �.
The operating system I am using is Windows 2000.
I remember something about this from previous experiences (before Windows) ........ you would need to put a line in your autoexec.bat but I can't remember what it was i.e. was it device=c:\dos\ansi.sys? and also would I need to put something in my CONFIG.sys?
