Missing Custom Numeric Formats After 5.9.0 Upgrade (Doc ID 1311331.1)
Last updated on MAY 05, 2011
Oracle Legal Whitehill Enterprise - Version: 5.9.0 and later [Release: and later ] Information in this document applies to any platform.
Custom numeric formats which existed in versions prior to 5.9.0 are missing when attempting to format a number.
These may have been accessible prior to version 5.9.0. The difference in the environments points to the introduction of the Oracle XE database which replaces the MS Access database and requires a conversion of the Wedist.mdb (which contained the formats) file into the Oracle database that now splits out the formats in a Formats.xml file and resides in the Shared folder.
