Am i that insane that i just dont understand why this is happening. I checked forums all over and the net, no answer.

Is the field a number field? Also, you have the time options selected in the inspector.

As Vaughan says, check the field's data type. You cannot format a Text field (or a calculation field with result type set to Text) as currency.
