Number Formats

The number format refers to the number of decimal places and the factor in which a figure is displayed.

The figure one million, displayed with one decimal place and a factor of 1000, reads: 1,000.0.

You can define the number format separately for individual rows, columns and cells of a report. Settings are possible at the following levels:

When you make settings at different levels, you define the number format separately for the detail list and the drilldown list. When you make these settings, observe the relationship between the column groups and the individual columns of the drilldown list and the rows, columns and cells of the form. For a form with two axes, this relationship is as follows:

Single column (drilldown list) <--> Cell (detail list)

Column group (drilldown list) <--> Row or column (detail list)

In case of conflicting number format settings, the system uses the setting which was last made.
