Entering Monetary Values

Monetary values entered with E notation are interpreted as float. This may cause an entry to be rejected or to lose some of its precision when it is stored as a money or smallmoney value.

money and smallmoney values can be entered with or without a preceding currency symbol, such as the dollar sign ($), yen sign (¥), or pound sterling sign (£). To enter a negative value, place the minus sign after the currency symbol. Do not include commas in your entry.
