hi all,

I have openoffice 1.1.0 and I configure spanish as locale (to have data format ok for me dd/mm/aaaa), but then the decimal separator is coma

the problem is my keyboard numeric pad have a point not a comma

it is possiible to select spanish for data format but select english for numeric format?

thanks

ok, this patch works, changing ascii code of keypad dot

but then other programs can be confused

is there any way to select separetelly the data format and the numeric format

I had the same problem with gnumeric and I solved using locale enviroment variables
I select spanish as defult and set LC_NUMERIC and LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8

so I have spanish data format and dot as separator for number

thanks
