    Format Problems

    Oli _

      Hello I try to import the figures of the colums, but I can only can define it as a charcter. But thats not enough, because I have to make further calculations. So the numeric format is obliged.

      I think the problem are the thousand seperators. How can I help Monarch to handle it ?

          I assume you are opening your file as a database; Monarch Pro can read this delimited file as a database (as opposed to a text file requiring a model to be created), specifing the pipe character | as the delimiting character.


          As for numeric fields being recognized only as character fields -- be sure you have defined your decimal character as a comma, not a period (in Monarch, go to: Options -> Input... and see "Numeric Translation - Decimal Character.")

            Thanks!!!! The changing within the Input... from Settings give me the correct values. ->set to comma for decimal characters.
