1850849 - Viewer query execution fails with integer error

Symptom

  • When running SAP Visual Enterprise Viewer based applications on computers where locales utilize a comma separator in numerics, (e.g. 0,75 as opposed to 0.75), Query functionality fails to operate correctly if using this notation in decimal values.

Environment

  • SAP Visual Enterprise Viewer

Cause

  • The underlying cause is the use of a comma separator (',') in decimal notation breaking the Query execution.

Example type error:

Resolution

  • This issue will be fixed with the next Maintenance Patches for both 7.0 & 7.1 releases, due May 2013.
  • As a workaround in the interim, one could change their respective Operating Systems locale so as to use the '.' decimal notation.
    • Example: Change keyboard setting format from German -> US etc.
