Dollar and yen symbols in an ABAP report

Application development expert Matt Billingham explains how to print an ABAP report that would contain the dollar sign when the amount is US dollars and the yen sign when it is yen.

I have been asked to print an ABAP report that would contain the dollar sign when the amount is US dollars and the yen sign when it is yen. Can I do that? If so, how?
IF currency EQ 'USD'.
WRITE '$'.
ELSEIF currency EQ 'JPY'.
WRITE '¥'.
ENDIF.
WRITE amount CURRENCY currency.
< br> If your keyboard doesn't have it, you can get the Yen symbol by pressing down the *ALT* *key*, type the four-digit *code 0165.*
