I can see your problem as well. It looks like when I have CDN=ON, if I run the report on my screen it shows , for decimal point. But if I hold it, I still see a dot.
You should probably reach out to IB Tech support to find out if they have a work around or a suggestion on how to handle that.
Just wondering what your system separators in Excel's Options/Advanced are set to. I believe if you set them to the European style, you'll get what you want.This message has been edited. Last edited by: BabakNYC,

I suspect your problem is related to the SQL client that you're using; in this case that is IBI's MS SQL adapter.
It wouldn't surprise me if the defaults for those were derived from Windows's Region and Language settings (or NLS settings on most other OS's) of your WFRS machine. Perhaps that is set to use dot for decimals and comma for thousands separator?
And then the WFRS software has a set of NLS settings as well, but I think that's limited to code-pages, but it can't hurt to look.
