CiviCRM simply shows a $ to represent either Can$ (or australian dollars). This can become confusing when $ currencies mix.

It keeps these symbols in the database. I suspect I can do something like

UPDATE civicrm_currency SET symbol = "Can$" WHERE name="CAD";

Will this survive updates ? Is there a better way to change this ?

  • Sounds like a potentially sane approach. presumably if the currency table gets touched in any upgrade then you might have to rerun your query
