Prerequisite

This article assumes you know how to use field formats to normalize and format your data in Parseur. Check out this article for more information.

Number format

Parseur lets you easily parse numbers (including spaces, commas etc) into real numbers using the Number format.

The "Number" format will transform any number represented in a text into a "real" number.

It will strip out any space, comma and additional formatting characters from the number.

Changing the decimal separator

By default, Parseur will use the period character (".") as the decimal separator.

If your documents use the comma (","), change your user preferences. To do that, go to your user preferences and update the Decimal separator setting.
