When retrieving a numeric value in Smartview, copying the datapoint and pasting it into Word, the formatting is not retained.

Content :


  1. ad hoc sheet in Excel Smartview
  2. styles are on Excel Formatting
  3. Number looks like € 1.125 in Excel
  4. Excel Smartview / Edit / Copy
  5. Word Smartview / Edit / Paste
  6. Refresh document
  7. Number retrieved: 1125,00000000
  8. Toggle Field Code shows the following
Toggle Field Code: {= HsGetValue("", "Years#2022", "Period#December", "Account#investeringsverplichtingen voor de aanschaf van vaste activa")|SmartView17074724504|_ [$€-813] * #.##0_ ;_ [$€-813] * -#.##0_ ;_ [€] * "-"??_ ;_ @_ |||}

When selecting the Update Field then I get an error message, but still keeps refreshing correctly.
