Rahul VaidSubject: Data in Excel not appearing properly after using format-number in xls
Author: Rahul Vaid
Date: 27 Jan 2006 12:51 AM
Initially the data that was appearing in my Excel sheet was shown properly.
This data was exported in servlet using :
res.setHeader("Content-disposition","inline; filename="abc.csv");
And at this time my XLS was having the columns as

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="text" indent="no"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
CCY Pair,CCY 1,Average Rate,CCY 2,P&amp;L (USD)
<xsl:apply-templates select="/response/tables/positions/row"/>
<xsl:template match="row">
<xsl:value-of select="currencyPair" />,<xsl:value-of select="contractAmount" />,<xsl:value-of select="contractRate"/>,<xsl:value-of select="counterAmount"/>,<xsl:value-of select="gainLoss"/>

But the moment I used format-number ( ie This format-number has inserted a comma inside my data) as a result of which the the data after comma appears in seperate column.But this I suppose is the csv property to treat every data after comma as seperate data.

<xsl:value-of select="substring(currencyPair,1,3)"/>/<xsl:value-of select="substring(currencyPair,5,3)"/>,<xsl:value-of select="format-number(contractAmount,'###,###.##')"/>,<xsl:value-of select="format-number(contractRate,'###,###.######')"/>,<xsl:value-of select="format-number(counterAmount,'###,###.##')"/>,<xsl:value-of select="format-number(gainLoss,'###,###.##')"/>

Please help me out in this.
Thanx in advance.

You have two choices.

1. Don't put commas in numbers for CSV output. For CSV output, if
the number has a comma in it, it isn't a number anymore, because of
point #2 below.

2. Put quotes around the number, like this:
<xsl:variable name="q">&quot;</xsl:variable>
<xsl:value-of select="concat($q, ......., $q)"/>
but then you've turned your number into a string, and it's not a
number anymore.

So, the short answer is, "don't put commas in numbers for CSV output."
