BI Publisher Excel Templates: Formatting large number?
Nov 22, 2012 11:19 AM
I am using this statemnt in XDO_METADATA sheet:
XDO_?SUM_BONUS_GESAMT? <?sum(current()/G_2/G_3/BP[../SPALTE/text() = '3'])?>
In the Excel output I get this: 1,2522883E7 with the warning 'Number stored as text'
While I am expecting this: 12522883
It only happens with large numbers.
If I just reference a field in the template with this number it is displayed cotrrectly in the output.
Is it possible to prevent this behaviour?
Thanks a lot

Ok solved the problem myself. This did the trick:
<?decimal(sum(current()/G_2/G_3/BP[../SPALTE/text() = '3']))?>
