    Re: Currency Format, written in US run in Shanghai

    SOLVED!!! It took a couple hours searching and piecing stuff together... This is the solution: In excel, when you format a cell currency, In my case on my computer $, it really is not dollars - Assuming that you choose the first selection below the "NONE" in the dropdown box...

    vba = Selection.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00"

    The first selection below "NONE" is the regional setting for the currency. So, if I run VBA on my computer in the US and choose "$" (1st selection below the NONE), I will see USD. But, if my VBA runs on a computer in Shanghai, it will set the symbol to their local currency, not $. So, to get the VBA to format the cell properly, I must choose (see below)

    recording a macro, this will be:
    Selection.NumberFormat = "[$$-409]#,##0.00"
