WARNING - EXCEL FILES POSTED BY Glovisol for the DrDAQ

Postby Glovisol » Sat Jan 24, 2015 7:45 am

The following problem has come to my attention.

When writing EXCEL files I am using the Italian version of Excel, where commas are used in places of dots and vice-versa. This can pose problems to users downloading the files and opening them with the English version of Excel.

EXAMPLES

The voltage of 347 mV appears as follows:
Excel Italian: 0,347 V
Excel English: 0.347 V

The voltage of 2345 V appears as follows:
Excel Italian: 2.345,00 V
Excel English: 2,345.00 V

I hope this helps.

Hi Glovisol,

I believe Excel translates depending on your language options.

Hi Karunen,

I should think so too and am inclined to agree, however I wrote this warning because, while in South Africa, a friend of mine downloaded the Excel file for the PSU and it did not work until he realised he had to modify the built-in formulas.

Could you pse download the PSU file & check?

Kind regards,

Hi Glovisol,

I downloaded the PSU file from https://www.picotech.com/support/topic14917.html and I had not issues.
