Hello, when I work with numbers with power builder 2019 the format I see well in my Laptop but when I already put it in the Cellular it appears with another format for example:
if the amount is 580.00 then on the mobile it shows me 5,800.00 why this is due, I have to be converting all the numbers to char so that I can restrict the format
My database is Oracle and if I save it correctly in the table the topic is when I show the HELP!

Hi William,

Please note the NLS_LANG on the machine where the Appeon server located at should be the same with the one in the database. You can go to the Register on the server where the Appeon server is installed to check if the NLS_LANG in the directory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>ORICAL (or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ORACLE) is the same with the one in database. If they are different, change it as per the one in database and restart the machine.

The NLS_LANG value is in the format

Please refer to the article below for details.

You could use the below SQL statement to check the parameter in the database.
SELECT * FROM nls_database_parameter;

Hi William;

   Check your Display & Edit mask settings. They should have the same mask value (format).

Can you tell us ...

1) PowerServer version & build

2) Mobile device type

3) Mobile O/S version

4) What is your mobile devices "regional" setting

Regards ... Chris
