Title

Decimal and thousands separators in different countries and OS

Post

     Hello,

     As it is stated in FMP Help file: The characters displayed for the decimal separator and thousands separator depend on the system formats set for the database file, and the display format for the field

     My PC runs under MS Windows 7 64 bits  using decimal separator "," and  thousands separator "." , Therefore, FMP accepts as valid the following calculation:   73,50 *5,67 but not the following calculation: 73.50 *5.67. 

     Is there any way to set up an FMP application under MS Windows 7 64 bits  using decimal separator "," and  thousands separator "."  so that it can be opened by FMP under MS Windows 7 64 bits  using decimal separator "." and  thousands separator ","?

      

     Thanks
