I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Dear gram77

The SAP login id you are using has its 'Decimal Notation' set to the European standard (1.234.567,89).

In European standard comma (,) is used for Decimal point and stop (.) for thousand separator.

You can run tcode: SU3 and change the Decimal notation from the "Defaults" tab.


thanks and regards
