2425437 - Cell format issue in Excel after exporting from Fiori: Numbers are exported as texts


After exporting to an Excel spreadsheet from a Fiori Application the numbers are displayed as texts:

  • decimals are separated with dots (e.g. 100.5) while the separator was a comma in the Fiori Application,
  • before negative values an apostrophe (e.g. '-5) is inserted,
  • amounts in that format cannot be used in formulas.
