How to create the "¤" symbol

The "¤" is required in start and stop transaction descriptions. If you do not have that character on your keyboard, there are two alternative ways to create it.

Use ASCII code

  1. In the Transaction description dialog, place your cursor in the Field name edit box.
  2. Hold down the Alt key and, using the number pad on your keyboard, type the ASCII code for that character, 0164.
  3. (In the case of portables that do not have a number pad, there is usually an Fn key. Pressing this key in combination with the Alt key enables an extra numeric keypad overlaid on the alphabetical keys.)
  4. When you release the Alt key, the "¤" character appears.

Copy method

If the above method fails, the Windows accessory program Character Map allows you to copy and paste the character.

  1. Start Character Map and select the System font.
  2. Double-click the "¤" character.
  3. Click Copy to copy the character to the clipboard.
  4. Return to the Kofax ReadSoft Invoices window, place your cursor in the Field nameedit box and press Ctrl+V.
