How do we remove the "US" portion of pricing, all show as US$0.00 and just want $0.00 -- I've changed table Currencyvalues with Hide=True, and blanked out the currencysymbol field, reset shop config but nothing changes.

xcurrencysymbol = $
xcurrencybase = USD

Found reference in shop$db.asp (SetSess "Newcurrencysymbol","US$") and changed to "" but again nothing changes.

Direction appreciated, thanks!

have you tried to go to your admin page, currency tables, then edit the usd record, change the currencysymbol to $ save it.

when you open your page try to change to other currency then change it back to us...

I had this problem also and couldn't find a way to properly fix it, but we don't deal with international prices, so I just put this hard code in.

check shopproductsubs2.asp on line 24.
shopformatcurrency=GetSess("Newcurrencysymbol") & formatNumber (tamount, decimalpoint)

I just changed

I also had this problem, I read the notes here:
but still had a problem.

then I found that it was because I'd left one of the other rates as 1; you should only have one ccy record which has a rate of 1, even if you're not using multi-ccy.

OK, that WAS the answer... until the recent patch for 6.x. If you applied the patch then your US problem is back!

Now you will have to change a line in shop$db.asp

Around line 2539 or so find:

SetSess "Newcurrencysymbol","US$"

Change it to:

SetSess "Newcurrencysymbol","$"

That line to set the session will override the table settings. Doh!

PS - You will have to close all browser windows in order to come in with a new session and see the change. Hint - to force the change to a new session make a minor change in global.asa and then save it.
