Going slowly crazy; over a thousand figures to localize into FR-CA format in a document and can't figure out to do it automatically. $2,020 needs to be 2non breakable space 020non breakable space$; $14.91 needs to be 14,91nonbreakable space$. Any suggestions? Furthermore everytime I do that particular formating I get a warning message about the figure missing or not localized properly, yet my language combination defined as EN-CA into FR-CA. Any suggestion? If no monetary sign localization works so 50, 491 becomes 50nonbreakablespace491. In French the thousand delimiter is a non breakable space, NOT a comma. The comma is for the decimal.
