Separator Handling

In some countries, for example the United States, periods are used to mark decimal points, whereas elsewhere, for example France, commas are used.

Similarly, some countries mark "thousands" using commas, whereas elsewhere periods or spaces may be used.

Solid Framework can try to identify what separators have been used within the PDF file that is being converted and will then use the separator that it considers to be most appropriate. However, if the file is inconsistent then the explicit values entered in the dropdown boxes will be used.

Alternatively, you can bypass this mechanism and explicitly state what separators you want Solid Framework to use when identifying numbers within the PDF file.

Note that this choice controls separator identification for the entire file.

If different separators are used by different tables within the PDF file, then some numbers will not be correctly identified. This will be the case whether or not "Auto-detection" is used.
