    I would like to be able to show prices for some ads as £POA while I can still show others as the actual price. Is there a way I could do this if anyone knows about this?

    Ash probably I didnt make myself clear. The problem is not displaying $ and £ I have a solution for that. What I want is to be able to display price as text i.e £POA instead of £1200  for one product and display the actual price as currency for another product i.e £350. The price column accept currency as data type. I have been able to input £POA as price but displaying it is a problem as it is a currency datatype. I hope I have explained this more clearly. Please help me.

    well, you need to find out how you will be able to distinguish between these two products...you might have to add a bit field to the DB that tells you if price is POA or not...

    if it is then you can format the price value to display POA else display the price
