Hi guys,

I can't seem to get thousand separators to work within modules. My numbers are written as 123456.01 I am using English en_us as my locale, and my currency is IDR (Rupiah). What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

Separator Format and Thousands Separator control this across the system.

1) Settings -> Translations -> Languages

2) Open the language you are using.

3) Check your settings:

We have one problem, if we use whitespace as thousands separator, that's not work on reports, may be it was a bug : https://bugs.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/+bug/1294088
