Problem importing sample import files

Document ID: DQ027
Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta
Document description: How to: Import sample import files in non US/UK locales…

When importing the sample data files in the IScripts\Samples directory they fail to import correctly or only import the integer part of the raw data.
This occurs when working in a locale which does not have . as the radix (decimal separator) e.g. Germany
Most of the installed sample files to import were generated on a UK system and they all use . as the radix.  This means that they cannot be imported on systems which do not use . as a decimal point. 
This does not mean that you cannot import files of that format on your system, it simply means you can only import files generated by your system (rather than those with different regional settings).
There is one example file in the installation directory which uses a comma radix:
IScripts\Samples\Stingray\endpoint example2 (german radix).dat
