Using comma instead of dot in csv file SAP HANA

I have a config file which is going through an SDI agent, I have created a flowgraph to load the csv file into target table.

The client while uploading the csv file is using comma instead of dot for decimals.

When I use comma in the csv file, the data is rounded i.e. 33,33 --> 3333
The result should display : 33,33 --> 33,33

What configuration should I do to get the correct answer?

Thank you,

Hello Shehzad,

you can configure this through the locale config parameter.

If you take a locale that usually uses a comma to as a decimal pointer it should recognize 33,33 as such and not as 3333. For your case the German locale (de_DE) might work.

Further down in this blogpost ( You can find more details about the individual config parameters.

Kind Regards,
