Internet Banking - ? Mark in amount fields

  lpl56407 12:20 19 Dec 2003

Whatever site I visit that has sterling amount fields a ? precedes the amount. Never really bothered about it until today when I tried to transfer some money via my Internet Bank. When I enter the amount - 500.00 it changes to ?500.00 and I get a response of inavlid amount field. Same happens if I delete the ? and try again.
Strange one. Any ideas please?

what operating system are you using?
Have you checked your language settings in regional settings in control panel?

if you go into regional settings, customize and then the currency tab, does it show the £ sign?

Yes it does.

Just checked the 'advanced' tab in Regional and Language Options. Changed 'Language for non-Unicode programs' from English (American) to English (United Kingdom), restarted PC and all now OK.
Thanks MadPentium
