I want to format a number to use comma as decimal separator in Excel using Report Generation Toolkit. How can I do it?


In order to write a number as a text in Excel using Report Generation Toolkit, the Append Report Text .vi should be used. In order to provide format and set comma as decimal separator, follow this steps.

1) Set format string as %.n, where n is the number of decimal characters 
2) Set the cell in Excel to be format as Text
In this example the number of decimal characters is set to 8
