Additional Information

This is by design. Use the 'Language for Number Formatting' parameter outlined in the work around or edit the input data values.


Note that both the TCP/Text input and TCP/Text output provide the ‘Language for Number Formatting’ parameter so, even if data from a North American provider uses a period (.) for the decimal, the output can still process numerical values with a comma (,) as the decimal is consistent with your locale. Alternatively, the input data can be modified to express numeric values in the local language.
