Set a Currency Prefix for a Dimension Value

Each Dimension Value can have its own Currency Prefix.  This makes it possible for a Measurement Value to be stated in the currency of the country in which the results occurred.  

When you are assigning a Currency Prefix to a Dimension Value, if the currency symbol you require is not already defined in the system you may add it. See Add a New Currency Prefix.
