Updating the system decimal separator

PROKON’s Structural Analysis modules Frame and Sumo only reads a dot (.) as a decimal separator. Excel has predefined system settings, one being how Excel separates a decimal value. If you’d like to copy data from Microsoft® Excel to either module, you’ll need to change the comma to a dot.

To change the system setting, do the following:

  • Go to Microsoft® Start and then Settings
  • Select Time & language, followed by Language & region
  • Scroll down until you find the Administrative language settings option and select it
  • In the popup window, select the Formats tab
  • Select the Additional settings…, located at the bottom of the popup window
  • A second window will open, change Decimal symbols from a commato a dot
  • Click Apply and OK.

This should update the Excel’s system separator, to use a dot as the decimal separator.
