Number format in evdre

In the evdre with format range we can format a number to be having $ etc etc

How can we swap commas and decimals. Keep in mind some countries they are swaped.

Example 2,500.09 has to be 2.500,09

Tried using the client settings. Excel options->advanced, where you can uncheck use system seperator option and let excel know what is for decimal seperator and what can represent 1000 seperator in this case I had it as , and . respectively.

When I do this and I type and send 2500,09 in my input schedule it goes as 2500.09 to the database which is good. On retrieve Into the evdre sheet I get 25000900000,00

The evdre cache is the same as database which is 2500.09. Dont know why the send is considering the client setting and retrieve is not.

Any advice or solution to this issue.

    I am wondering if the windows or MS office installation should be changed to a different country where the default is . for 1000 seperator and , for decimal seperator.

    I think you just need to use the Format Range on your EVDRE, then make it so that you specifically target the data range you want, followed by in your example press Control + 1 to bring up numbe format. Then use 'Custom' and make it so it shows how you want.

    Saving this and then ensuring you have USE as 'ALL' or at least 'NUMBERFORMAT' should work if I understand your problem correctly.

    Hope this helps,
