Yes, i am using XLSFORM,

I can not upload files, because i am new user

Instead of uploading your .xlsx file you can post a table by pasting into ASCII table, copying the output, and wrapping the output with ``` on the lines before and after to make it show up like:

|  Col1   |  Col2   |
| Value 1 | Value 2 |
|   type   |   name  |       label                     |  appearance      |
| integer  | P3079   | ¿Cuánto le pagó el mes pasado ? |  thousands-sep   |

From the ODK docs:

If thousands-sep is added to appearance, integer, decimal, and number text widgets will display their values using locale-specific thousands separators.
Note: For locales that use the point separator (.), a space is used instead.

Are you seeing spaces, for example 1 000 000? If that is what is happening, then I think it might be due to the locale/language selected in the device settings.

yes, i am seeing spaces,

I'm going to check what configuration the machines have and I write you.

thanks for your quick response

Good afternoon,

The locale is the pc where it generates the XML or mobile dispostivo, on my smartphone I have in eidiona Spanish (Colombia) and tambie probe with Spanish (USA)

The locale that determines separators is the locale of the mobile device.

It would be really helpful to get screenshots or a text representation of the values you're seeing! It's not clear to me whether the value is being cleared or whether the separators are showing up differently.

The values are not erasing, for example there is 1 000 000, the (,) is replaced by spaces, and try with Spanish (Latin American) and Spanish (USA) in the configuration of my device
