Limit the usage of delimiter

Hello,

 

I have an app which is used by multiple people in different countries. Regional settings of their computers are different and in some case number 15.6 is using "." as delimiter, and in another case 15,6 when using "," as delimiter. I am looking for a way to ensure the usage of only one delimiter which to record proper data in the SQL i am using as database. My idea is when entering a number into the form, it to be auto-corrected (or denied to be accepted) ensuring we use only the approved delimiter.

 

Can you please help me with that?

Thanks

@dvoinikat Before patcing the data to the database you can use the Substitute function to substitute all undesired delimiters to the one you want. Substitute( yourText, ",", "." )
