We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Issue with StringToNumber function depending on locale

When the function StringToNumber is used, the TM1 process uses the client's locale/language to set the decimal and thousand separators when the client creates a process.

After a process is created the decimal and thousand separators will not change, so the decimal and thousand separators will be set to the locale of the client that created the process.

So, when an end-user, with different locale, launches the process, the function StringToNumber does not recognize the decimal and thousand separators. So, we get a wrong amount.

For example, in English the decimal is a period (.) whereas in French is a comma (,).

This is a big issue for companies that use the TM1 tool from different countries.

And it is not possible to use the function StringToNumberEx as the decimal and thousand separators can be different depending on the country.
