2138804 - Configuration required to use the Compensation Number Format defined in the Options Menu.


Since b1408 it is possible to select different number formats to display compensation data according to country or language requirements, but there is a necessary configuration at template level to make it work correctly.


Compensation and Variable Pay

Reproducing the Issue

There are 4 different format options in Options Menu > Compensation Number Format


These options can replace commas by points or spaces according to our preferences, but it is necessary to define a number format in the template containing commas, points or spaces to make this configuration work.


For example, if our Compensation or Variable Pay template is defining a Default Money Format ###0,## where there is no separation between thousands and hundreds, the Number Format defined in Options will not apply, as there is no value that the system can modify. On the other hand, if the Default Money Format is #,##0.## the system can modify the comma for a space or a point and the point for a comma or a space as there is a value to modify.


To modify the number formats in Compensation it is necessary to do it at template level. Please open a case with Support and attach a CCOR to request the changes at XML level.


To modify the number formats in Variable Pay you can do it Admin Tools > Compensation Home > Select your VRP template > Plan Setup > Settings > Set Number Format Rules
