Bug report #6719

Add delimited text plugin: decimal point do not affect numerical fields other than lat/long

Added by Washington Junger over 11 years ago. Updated almost 10 years ago.

Category:Data Provider/Delimited Text
Affected QGIS version:1.8.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:15884


The option "decimal point" only affects the fields "lat" and "long" and it will fail if the user try to add a csv data sheet with numerical fields other than ".". So these columns are imported as text or the plugin aborts.
Using comma as decimal point and semicolon to separate columns is the standard in MS Excel and LibreOffcie Calc for some Latin languages (e.g. Portuguese).
Thanks in advance.

Qgis 1.8.0 (Ubuntu 64 and Win7 64).
