How do I set Goldenseal for a different currency?

Goldenseal accounting software uses the currency symbol that is set in your System. You can change it to euros, pounds, yens, pesos, Klingon darseks or any other currency symbol. These instructions are for Windows software-- click here for Macintosh.

NOTE-- If you use the Euro symbol or some other special symbol, you'll also need to use a font that includes that character.

If you haven't already set a currency symbol, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Start button, and choose Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the Regional and Language Options icon.
