Now when I make invoice I see :
so the comma is the thousand separator, and the dot is the decimal separator
This is fine for UK customers,
But what about a Dutch or any other European customer,
then I want EUR 3.500,25
the dot as the thousand separator end the comma as teh decimal separator
How can I use both methods in 1 system?
I use Postgresql
this is configurable per language.
Have a look at the description for field "Decimal Point" in http://www.adempiere.com/Adempiere3.2.0/en/ManPageW_Language_olh
I see in the system the difference,
When I choose the Dutch language I see EUR 3.500,25
This works OK
But when I print the invoice, I see still the UK method,
This means I have to change all the reports?
Then you should enable Multi Lingual Documents for your client (http://www.adempiere.com/Adempiere3.2.0/en/ManPageW_Client_olh) and set the corresponding language for the business partner (http://www.adempiere.com/Adempiere3.2.0/en/ManPageW_BusinessPartner_olh).
That means that even when you do not have translated any document content for that language you should get the correct number format in the print.
Thanks Dirk, I will try it this weekend.
So this measns I have to choose 1 language for that business pasrtner, and what about different languages for 1 BP (as well as English as Dutch)?
And also. in the Business Partner language filed, I can only choose twolanguages, English UK and English USA
How can I add more languages?
If your business partner needs one docuemnt in English and one in Dutch then you would have to change the preferred language in between. If there is no translation for that document he will get it in English anyhow.
To add more languages you may have a look at http://www.adempiere.com/Adempiere3.2.0/en/ManPageW_Language_olh and http://www.adempiere.com/How_to_activate_language and http://www.adempiere.com/Language_Pack_Installation
Dirk, Thank your for your good explanation,
