3386949 - Currency conversion is not working for some currency symbols.


The following local currency get incorrectly converted after running currency conversion.

For example:

  • XOF is showing CFA
  • HKD is showing HK$


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2023.8.0
  • SAP UI5 1.60.29

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a data action with currency conversion step or use currency cross calculation to convert currency from the group currency to local currency.
  2. Notice some local currency symbols are not displaying as expected.


By design.

SAP Analytics Cloud uses the following currency symbols from the SAPUI5 libraries:

AUD: "A$",

BRL: "R$",

CAD: "CA$",

CNY: "CN¥",

EUR: "€",

GBP: "£",

HKD: "HK$",

ILS: "₪",

INR: "₹",

JPY: "¥",

KRW: "₩",

MXN: "MX$",

NZD: "NZ$",

TWD: "NT$",

USD: "$",

VND: "₫",


XCD: "EC$",



XXX: "¤"


By design.
