The formatting characters in a FORMAT phrase determine whether the output of numeric data is considered to be monetary or non-monetary. Numeric information is considered to be monetary if the FORMAT phrase contains a currency symbol.

Formatting characters are case insensitive.

The result of a formatted numeric string is right-justified.
