1384042 - Xcelsius shows #VALUE when XML data source is used

Symptom

Data from an XML data source when used in Xcelsius and previewed, shows #VALUE.

Reproducing the Issue

XML Data source

Cause

The numeric values in the XML data contain commas and so when Xcelsius consumes this XML, it assumes it to be a string and ignores it.

Resolution

Remove the commas in the XML data so that Xcelsius considers the data as numeric type and not as string type.

Keywords

#VALUE, commas in data
