European vs. American number format


Recommended Posts

Hi All!


I've been working around filemaker for a few months, but I can't get through the comma vs dot decimal marker. In my systems, european windows XP, the decimals are marked by a comma. However, even turning on the system formats, when using the keyboard number pad, it always marks a dot, turning impossible to perform calculations.


Has anyone toughts about this issue?


Best regards

go to you number format & check that no one has changed the 'Decimal Seperator' from point to a comma.


A decimal point is a decimal point no matter where you are the comma should only be visible wehn displaying 1000's

England is an island, eh?




I have made a quick test switching my system (Mac OSX) to decimal comma and it works as expected. Does this happen with files created on your system?
