Hi All,

I followed the excellent Paypal Button Donation Tutorial at
crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...l-donation-form.html

It worked really well in allowing me to create a form that captures entrants details, including a field for them to add a donation amount (scripted to be a minimum of 5.00 GBP) and then sends to PayPal for payment.

One thing that has cropped up though in testing though, is that if someone puts in the currency symbol (in this case "£" for GBP) in the Donation Amount field it gets rejected / error by PayPal on submission.

So the minimum 5.00 works fine
But if minimum £5.00 is entered (as some people might naturally do) it gets an error screen on PayPal, which I have attached.

Would anyone have any thoughts or suggestions of how I might be able to fix this? Would there be a bit of function code that could strip out £ symbol if used maybe? I could include text in the label that says "no need for the symbol" but this may not look quite right.

Thanks everyone, and any further help or suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Jamie
