    Can I use a comma as a decimal separator in the calculation values option?

    Asked by hgw7m on June 24, 2016 at 08:04 AM


    I'm noticing that my form does not sum up correctly - may be the values I entered must be with point as decimal separator, or is it correct as I did with , ?

    Yes, you should use the point as decimal separator, otherwise it will ignore the 0. You can test the demo form:


    When using the comma, the value passed to calculation is 5 instead of 0.5.
