Does the data in the database actually include the Euro symbol
or does the database contain only the numerical values? In other
words, is the Euro symbol added as formatting when the database 
produces the export file that you're importing into FrameMaker? 
If so, my recommendation would be to export just the numerical
data, and apply the Euro symbol as autonumbering that is 
attached to the paragraph tag you use for the price.

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

David
Here is what we figured out. We had to bring the correct hex ISO latin-1
character codes for frame to understand the euro.

For the euro symbol -- "\xf5 " no quotes and space after the 5.

We will have to incorporate this into our filemaker out put.
Interesting.
