Substitute_Decimal2Comma

Should be used when display language setting is GERMAN and the import has brought in numeric data as character due to the decimal point. This script converts values with decimal seperator to comma seperator and changes the data type to continuous.

 

THIS SCRIPT WILL NOT WORK FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE SETTING

 You will find the script to convert in the other direction commented or under this script in file exchange ("Substitute_Comma2Decimal.jsl")

 

There are three files:

  • "HowTo" document "Decimal2Comma.doc"
  • The script file itself "Substitute_Decimal2Comma.jsl"
  • Example Data Table to be used to test the script "Decimal_Comma.jmp"

You might change the script to fullfill your language needs. However it should work also for FRENCH and other languages supporting comma separated floating point numbers.
