Important note about the number format in the reports:

As those reports use the Ad-hoc structure, they retrieve the data directly from the Database. And unlike the data on the worksheets, the values are not formatted in the same way :

- When downloading and opening the reports in Excell, the formating will be done by excel.

- When downloading the .csv version, and opening with some other softwares (like notepad ++), no formatting will take place, and the raw values will be displayed.
