Hi Experts,

We have a requirement to change the default decimal notation from one user language to other user language. For instance the decimal notation for Dutch language is ","[comma] , we need to change this notation to "."[dot]. Whenever user put a comma it should be treated as dot. In R/3 ,In SU01 Transaction we are able to change the decimal notation etc.Is there any possibilities to achieve this in portal content development.

Hi Ramanan,

The problem is that the decimal seperator is defined by http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/DecimalFormatSymbols.html - which is used within the DecimalFormat class; and from the portal applications, this is created with the user's locale.

So there is - as far as I know - no way to change these standard mapping locale <-> format definition.

Hope it helps
