Maybe I'm missing something but with ArchiCAD 18 (US Version - using feet and inches), when I save a schedule containing polygon areas, each of which is between several hundred thousands and 10 million square feet, the export to Excel truncates the actual numbers turning (for example), 1,600,000 SF into 1.60!!!
I don't know whether ArchiCAD's algorithms are reading the commas in the Schedule as metric separators between hundreds from thousands etc, but the exports from ArchiCAD 18 do not place the correct numerical values into Excel.
Anyone else experiencing this?
Thank you for the heads up about this problem. We identified the source of it and are working on a solution.
Until we release the next update for ArchiCAD 18 you can workaround the problem by changing the decimal separator from , to .:
- Windows: Control Panel, Region and Language, Additional Settings, Decimal Symbol
- Mac: System Preferences, International, Formats
