3380539 - Behavior of WordNum Function in ALD


User is unable to covert the Total amount field in Indian word format.

For Example:

Total: 12,24,530 (here 12,24,530 is a digit only)
System Resulting:
Total Rupees in Words: "One Million Two Hundred Twenty-four Thousand Five Hundred Thirty"

Your Requirement(Indian word Format):
Total Rupees in Words: "Twelve lakh twenty-four thousand five hundred thirty Rupees and zero paisa only"


SAP Business ByDesign

SAP Cloud for Customer Core Application

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Adobe LiveCycle Designer
  2. Open the Form XXXX ( here XXXX is a form)
  3. Navigate to the Total amount field
  4. Observe the Total amount field is not as expected


The scripting program uses the WordNum function to translate in word format.


SAP Business ByDesign (SAP ByD) or SAP Cloud for Customer Core Application does not have a built-in feature to directly convert WordNum (number in words) into Indian numeral representation.
