Export table with numbers formatted when using comma as decimal separator

Export table with numbers formatted when using comma as decimal separator

So many countries, like in the continental Europe, South America and many Africa and Asia countries uses comma as decimal separator and dot as thousand separator.

Qlik has noted that as the number format and separators are set in the initial variables of any Qlik Sense document since the first version of Qlik Sense.

For some reason the new option to export table formats introduced in February 2022 ignores that number formats and doesn't apply any number format when it found that there is a comma as decimal separator.

I thought it should be reported as a bug but R&D thinks this is just a limitation, I can agree with them so here is an idea to remove that limitation and allow that half the world to keep the numbers in the formats they are used to read.

indeed, the actual version is not very useful.

At the moment we can't use this "improvement" ☹️
