Hi Yves,

It's definitely possible, and you can accomplish it by
adapting the script I provided a few days ago for
inserting commas.
Relevant link to the use-revolution archive:
http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-revolution/2002-September/008009.html

Simply change the last line of insertCommas from
  return tMinusHold & pNumber & tDecimalHold
to the following code
  put tMinusHold & pNumber & tDecimalHold into \
  tResult
  replace "," with " " in tResult
  replace "." with "," in tResult
  return tResult

The problem with that, however, is that when the user
enters the field again, the data won't be seen as
"numeric" as MC/RR evaluates an expression as a number
only if it's in the decimal-point-without-commas
format.

Of course you could change it back to numeric format
on openField, but that would be confusing to the user
to say the least...
It's on my to-do list to figure out a good way to
handle that. My main focus was on preventing the
typing and/or pasting of unwanted characters.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
