Unable to produce a FEC audit file with the comma as decimal separator.

The FEC setup and FEC_GLOBAL map do not allow users to determine what character will be used as decimal separator. The People books state that this is managed by the Regional Personalization Options, but even though the comma separator is set as the default, the file still comes out with the period as decimal separator.

Expected Behavior:
FEC file should take into account the setup from Regional Personalization Options and the file should appear with comma instead of dot.

Steps to Replicate:

1. Change Regional Personalization Options for decimal separator from dot to comma
2. Obtain the file and notice that the decimal separator is not changed

Please see replication steps for more details.
