i think its an excel issue- from my memory cells can often default to date format when copying and pasting data in there and think it may be defaulting to a date format behind the scenes- try opening up the sheet and reformatting the cells to a number; if that solves it you will need to either raise a case with IB or ask someone whose good at macros and stuff to see if they can help you with a work around- but im pretty sure its excel

Hi Focus Guys, These seem to be American Fellows on the Line. ON TABLE SET CDN ON should be the solution. We, Europeans, are fond of Commas instead of dots. In the old days Focus was conscious of that and had the variable CDN to comply our old habits Cordialement and Focusly PS : glad that a platinum member put CDN on the line (Wish I could turn into a lead member)

converting your dates back to numbers in excel will not give you the wanted result. Your format is MM YY but the internal number will be something like 30217. Try converting it to a flat number and you will see what I mean. The comma suggestion (CDN) might do the tric, but that also may cause a problem if your excel basic format is NOT setup with a decimal comma.
I would try the EXL2K format and see if you can get the grid in an other way.

The SET CDN = ON method worked well with the customer in Europe. Unfortunately the report is also currently being used by customers in the US. So had to scratch that idea off.
When I use export the excel document using EXL2K, the value is displayed correctly, however there were issues with the grid lines not being able to displayed. Search through the forums and looks like there is no solution to this unless you use a template or something like that.
So the final solution was to change the value to display 3 (D10.3) decimal values like 5.556. That seem to solve the issue plus the customer was ok with it.
Once again thanks to all that responded.

I guess you Brits always haveto make things a little more difficult, but then as a Canuck I am used to the British way of doing thinhs, except ofr driving on the wrong side of the road. Be that as it may, then the problem with the date/amount would not be a problem with UK only Frnace/Germany etc.
