3251818 - Displaying Amount and Currency in Form Templates - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


When using a custom form template, the amount is shown with an incorrect currency when displaying the rendered document.

Image/data in this document is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.




A display pattern describes how data will be displayed in the form.
Because the display pattern describes how data will be displayed in the form, all default values, user-entered values, and values retrieved from a database are converted to the format described by the display pattern.
If you set up a display pattern, the currency will come from the defined pattern and not from the backend.
The system settings of the user's PC are used to display the currency.



Follow the same approach as the SAP standard does:

  1. Bind Amount and Currency in individual, hidden fields
  2. Have an additional visible field for Amount and Currency
  3. Have a script on this field which concatenates the values of the two hidden fields.
