My Simple Invoices set up is perfect, except for one thing. I want to display £ – GBP – throughout the site. Currently, the invoices are listed in $ – USD.
My actual invoices are fine and they show £.
Where can I change this? I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon looking and now can’t see for looking. Undoubtedly, it’s a simple answer that I have failed to spot.

Click on the Settings tab and then on the Inv Prefs menu option. You can set the currency symbol to use as well as the currency formatting code country in each of the invoice preference records.June 11, 2019 at 6:25 am #404
Thanks for replying. Unfortunately, what you suggest has already been done.
The currency symbol is set, as are the language and the locale.
The invoice itself is fine and show £.
It’s the invoices listed in [money][invoices] that show $ in the list of invoices. This is what I wish to change.

I just uploaded a change that uses the local.locale setting in the custom.config.php file to format the amount fields in the invoices and payments lists. I believe this will address the issue you pointed out. The version for this update is: 2019.2.1 – 20190613.August 13, 2019 at 7:46 am #425
I’m so sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. I realise that not getting feedback for changes you make must be really irritating 🙁
I am trying to use this version but I am getting errors when trying to use the new version.
Patches up to #307 work but after that there is a failure for #308 – #318.
How do I apply these patches? The [update] button does not work.
I get this error:
SqlPatchManager::runSqlPatch() error. See error log for more information.August 14, 2019 at 2:58 am #426

Can I add this local.locale setting to the custom.config.php Master_2019? If so, what is the setting?

You should already have the setting in the custom.config.php file. It looks like this:
local.locale = en_US
local.precision = 2
This of course if for USA and two decimal place precision. If you look in the “lang” directory, you will see all the different country codes for languages supported on the system. Find yours and replace “en_US” with the file name of your language.August 17, 2019 at 1:34 am #428
Thanks for getting back to me.
My initial issue with my old install of SI was PDFs stopped working. I installed your latest current version and that’s when I noticed the currency symbol issue. PDFs printed fine.
I tried the _beta version, as suggested and hit lots of error messages with patching MySQL (see my earlier post in this thread.)
I returned to the latest current version as the production of PDFs is a pressing invoicing issue.
Obviously, having the £ symbol throughout SI would be an aesthetic improvement. The £ symbol appears on the invoice itself so I’m not being paid in dollars : though that might be better in the coming months as the £ falls in value compared to the dollar 🙁
Having read what you said, I hoped that changing the local.locale setting in my custom.config.php file would fix this slight issue. The changes you suggest (to en_GB etc.) are there but so is the $ sign.
Am I missing something?
I can’t return to _beta as there is a warning about production use. I think I have lost my .zip of 2019.2.1 – 20190613 – but that doesn’t work because of the patch issue.

I’m interested in correcting the problem with applying patches to the DB with the master_2019.2.1_beta version. Any chance you can provide me with a dump of your database structure? Also, what version of php and mysql are you running (xampp version OK if using)?August 17, 2019 at 5:24 am #430
mysql version = 5.7
php = 7.2August 17, 2019 at 11:34 am #432
I would appreciate a copy of your database schema. You can download it with phpMyAdmin and exclude data from it and I’ve added the ability to attach files to this forum. I want to see if there is something in the structure that prevents the update script from working.August 17, 2019 at 1:02 pm #433
I’ll attach it tomorrow. Thanks.August 18, 2019 at 12:33 am #434
When you pull your schema, please do include the following tables: si_extensions, si_sql_patchmanager & si_system_defaults. The data in these tables don’t contain any secure/personal information. This is a little more work than just dumping the schema, but not too much.August 19, 2019 at 3:03 am #435
Sorry for the delay. Other things got in the way yesterday. I’ll get access sometime today and will do this.

I hope this is enough. Cheers.
