Gosh, how embarrassingly simple. Thanks! I keep forgetting
that reports have options. :-(

Yes, when I set the Windows locale to English-US, Gnucash
displays dollar amounts prefixed with "$" and yen amounts
prefixed with "JPY" which is what I'd prefer to see. Unfortunately,
for several reasons I have to keep the system-wide locale set
Any idea how to run Gnucash under Windows with an application-
specific locale? On *nix I guess I would do something like
LANG=en_US /usr/bin/gnucash ...
but I don't know what the Windows equivalent would be. I tried
adding the line
in the gnucash.bat file without effect.
