Hello, I use the send command to send text to a table in a openoffice writer document. Whenever "." (fullstop) Appears in the text this is changed to "," comma. How can I prevent this from happening?
Thank you.

es.:

send("Mr. Smith") --->  Mr, Smith

Have you tried

Send ("Mr.Smith",1)

However, I would reccomned the ControlSend Function.


Life's simple. You make choices and you don't look back.

Thanks, but unfortunately it does not work.
There are no objects in the text file where I just fill in some tables for to use ControlSend()

I don't have OpenOffice Writer so I am unable to test but give this a try. 

Send ("Mr{.}Smith")

That's no good. The result is this Mr {,}

:-(

 

I'm afraid the error is OpenOffice at this point that translates the character "." to ","

I use OpenOffice 4.1.3

Okay Sky, thanks. I solved by removing the decimal separator selection (,)
Thank you for your much appreciated help.
