(XML) Report Generating Wrong NLS_NUM Characters (Doc ID 1953962.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to get XML reports to display numeric values correctly. For example:
When running the report "Transaction historical summary (XML)" and formating the output to EXCEL some numeric values appear as date values.

The reason for this is that Excel interprets the numeric values that contain one decimal place as month and day if the value range permits this eg. 1.06 appears as "06.jan" as the Hungarian(and Middle European)  standard is ", ", that is, a comma and a space.
