FORMAT() returns the wrong characters for SOME currency symbols

Hi all, 

 

I am using the FORMAT function to dynamically change currency symbols (chosen by a slicer) and I have run into a rather strange problem. SOME 😲 of the currencies are not returned correctly. Mostly the FORMAT function is doing what I want. I find this rather frustrating.

 

Here are the symbols not working:

1) FORMAT([Measure], "Kn #,##0.##") returns K2 #,##0.##
2) FORMAT([Measure], "S/ #,##0.##") returns 0/ #,##0.##
 
Using £, $, €, ₨ etc works fine.

Any ideas how to solve this problem willbe greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance.

@JanaP , Try like

 

1) FORMAT([Measure], "\K\n #,##0.##") returns K2 #,##0.##
2) FORMAT([Measure], "\S/ #,##0.##") returns 0/ #,##0.##

What is the rationale behind the solution, please? Thank you .
