Description ozgunm 2003-04-25 09:10:26 UTC
Our company is one of the important financial goverment corporation and we've 
got more than 500 windows machines that are using different versions of 
OpenOffice(1.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3) since OpenOffice 641C . 

In Windows 2000(SP3) users can change decimal symbol or digit grouping symbols 
to format their numbers. 

We are using English edition of Windows 2000 with Turkish locale settings and 
default language settings for the system is "Turkish". (Default decimal symbol 
is "," and default digit grouping symbol ".")
If we use these default setting with OpenOffice there is no problem. But when 
we change these symbol chars from Control Panel OpenOffice doesn't react 
according to new settings.
For example if I change decimal symbol from "," to "." and digit grouping 
symbol from "." to "," OOo doesn't handle these new settings. It expects "," 
for a decimal number although I changed the system decimal symbol.

We solve these problem by changing "Language Setting" from OpenOffice. But in 
that case we cannot sort Turkish chars correctly. 

Ms Excel takes these symbols directly from the system settings, if you change 
these symbolsform control panel, excel automaticly handles them.

Thanks a lot.
