Restricted Key figure - Displaying as normal number instead of currency


I'm creating a restricted key figure using 0AMOUNT which of course is currency, however in the cube that I'm using 0AMOUNT is used for both Dollars and Quantities. The problem is 1) it is always displaying a $ symbol in front of the key figure and 2) it seems when I try to create a calculated key figure and try to add the 0AMOUNT to another 0QUANTITY infoObject I get an error (I'm presumming because I'm trying to add a number to a currency infoObject).

So my question(s) are 1) Can I format my new restricted key figure to always display as Quantity even though it's a currency info object

and 2) Can I do a calculated key figure adding a Currency InfoObject to a Quantity infoObject?

Thank you very much!

1) For your first question, u don't to have the currency dollar displayed for the restricted 0amount instead you want the unit of quanity.?if you want to do this,you could make use of Excel's format options i.e go to

format-->.Style->Select the stdBexInput item and make the appropriate settings.

2) You can use NODIM() function to add two different keyfigures.
