How can I put a dollar sign or symbol in my amount fields in my online applications?

When applicants are filling out the requested amounts or budgeted amounts in an online application the fields will not take the "$" symbol.
The amount fields are what are called "currency" fields and will only take numeric data or numbers.
Suggestion: Put the "$" symbol before the amount field and specify in your text description to fill in the field with numbers only no symbols ($, # etc..) Example: $10.00 should be 10.00.
