If you have setup up redmine with "german" as default language, the number will the delimited by a dot. But the correct delimiter is a comma.

So this is leading to not capable of being totaled in excel, when the data will be exported as cvs.

Hi Carl,
can you give a little more details where you created a CSV and what kind of report you requested.
I have done that for the issues where time tracking record are associated with numbers like 1.5 hours etc.
After the CSV export i get exactly what expected (1,5) which can used perfectly with Excel.

Kind regards

Hi there,

I have the same problem. Is there a known solution?

My user account is set to "German". When I generate a report "Spent time" for a given project all time values are shown with "." as decimal delimiter. After the export to a file the same delimiter are used there.
