What is a correct format?
a quantity field in SAP is defined with 3 decimals in general thru the field domain.
hence, when you enter 1, then SAP adds the decimal separator and the 3 decimals after hitting enter.
Based on the customizing of unit of measure the appearance can be controlled, but just the appearance, you cannot restrict to enter no decimals, even you dont display them
Aaaaargh! This can be frustrating in reporting out of SAP into Excel: decimals are considered thousands separator or numbers are not recognized at all as a number. There are three settings involved. To properly solve this issue:
first check what is the standard decimal figure used in your company. Then check if this is also used in SAP (System > User profile > Own data ).
then check the regional settings of Windows (in XP look in Control Panel). The regional settings also determine the decimal settings. Make sure this is also in sync.
finally check Excel options (Tools > Options ). Either use system settings or enter the figures manually.
