Hi Esa,

RunRev expects numeric data to have a decimal point.
Therefore, you'll have to convert between 'display'
and 'calculation' format before and after calculation.
If you don't need thousand separators, then it's as
easy as:
  function Conv4Disp pNumber
    replace "." with "," in pNumber
    return pNumber
  end Conv4Disp
  function Conv4Calc pNumber
    replace "," with "." in pNumber
    return pNumber
  end Conv4Calc

Hope this helped,
