Excel database format switch

Hi,

 

I created a Leave Request app for my company with a PowerApps Canvas app. The database is an Excel file stored in OneDrive.

In my company, workers are allowed to take "hour-based" leaves, and every worker has its own number of hours allowed, which can include decimals (for instance, a worker can at most take 13,2 hours of leave).

 

Therefore, in my database, I have a column with decimal numbers stored in European format - where the decimal delimiter is a comma. I configured OneDrive, Excel, and PowerApps correctly to be able to support the comma decimal delimiter.

 

Today, after a few weeks of usage of the application in the company, I dived into the database and found out that the database is in a complete mess, as if it ignored the comma delimiter (for instance, instead of 13,2 hours, it shows 132 hours). I suspect this is because some workers in the company are not European and are using the app on a smartphone that is set up with a language whose decimal delimiter is not a comma.

 

Are you familiar with this issue? Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening?

Please note that the app only has to read data in that particular column. It writes in another column.
