What do you mean?

Are you talking about database structure (the underlying field types
in the database itself), or are you talking about something on the
client side.

NB. Currency is not really one of those "easy answer" questions, a lot
really depends on how the field is used, what sort of currency it
holds, what manipulations will be performed, what levels of precision
are required.

ie. More info please.

Note also; you can answer a lot of questions more quickly as easily
via the following resources (in particular look at the tech info
sheets for an article on IB/FB numeric fields)...
