1196486 - Dashboard Design support for date and time format regional settings

Symptom

Dashboard Design support for date and time format regional settings.

Resolution

Dashboard 4.0 and Xcelsius 2008 supports regional settings that affect numeric, date and time formats.
 
For example, if you go to your regional settings (Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional Options) and change the region to a region that uses a comma as the decimal separator instead of a period, Xcelsius will support it.
 

NOTES

  • You have to import/re-import the Excel spreadsheet after you set your regional settings for the changes to take effect.
  • We do not support these settings at the per cell format level, only when you change the language at the system level.
