System Parameters


Thousands Separator


Assigns the thousands separator/character for use in formatted numeric data IO. Use the ASCII value of the character.

For WindX environments, this parameter must be set on both the client and the server.

'TH' is used if I/O is formatted in the INPUT, OBTAIN and PRINT directives and the STR( ) function (and ignored for unformatted I/O).

It is always ignored by the NUM( ) function and when using the WRITE, READ, FIND or EXTRACT directives in converting numeric data.


'TH'=44 or 'TH'=ASC(",") for the comma
