I need to change the format of the price-column when generating a report.
I am from Germany and in Europe, the number format goes like this: 1.000
But Sketchup uses the amerikan format by default: 1,000
Also I need decimals: 1.000,00
When I give a component a price, for example 12999,33 Sketchup changes it in 1,299,933 when I generate a report.
Can somebody help me with this?
Is it using your computer’s regional [additional] number settings ?
There are Control Panel settings.
The settings are all ok.
Also other programs like Excel work just fine.
I only have this problem in Sketchup.
SInce the introduction of the advanced attributes, there has been a need for ‘true’ values:
Valuta in price
Clickable URLS in URL
Automated (Boundingbox) sizes.
Back to Dynamic Components and converting data in other software (Excel/Numbers/FMP, etc)
It works with dynamic components.
I just created an attribute “Price” and added it to the report. Unfortunately, it doesn’t convert the € sign correctly, so I had to made it a decimal number. Not perfect, but it works for my purpose.
Thanks a lot guys!!
I hope the Sketchup-developers will improve the export of prices, since it is a great basis for calculations. As it is now, I would consider it more a bug than a feature…
