The fixed decimal places are still there - so instead of seeing 2.000, the display reads 2,0000.

Check to see if the calculator is in European mode where the comma is sometimes used rather than the period.

SOURCE: 500 x 16 reads 8.000,0 instead of 8,000.00

The calculator has two digit-separation marks: The dot [.] and the comma [,].

By default the decimal (radix) mark is the dot, and the comma serves as a 3-digit separator. In European countries (especially France) the radix mark is the comma and the 3-digit separator is the dot.

To switch the marks:

- Turn calculator OFF
- Press and HOLD the [.] key while pressing [ON].

SOURCE: display shows comma in place of decimal point?

To change the ´comma´, make sure the calculator is switched to off, press (.) key and maintain, switch the calculator ON. This operation changes dot to comma and vice-versa.

The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:

f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard

4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)

3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)

2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)

0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)

add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)

Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

Hello,

Here is what the manual for the HP 12C Platimum financial calculator says on page 17 of 275

**Digit Separators**

*As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display. When the calculator is first turned on after coming from the factory — or after Continuous Memory is reset — the decimal point in displayed numbers is a dot, and the separator between each group of three digits is a comma. If you wish, you can set the calculator to display a comma for the decimal point and a dot for the three-digit separator. To do so,*

turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the**[ . ]** key while you press **[ON]** Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

The comma is a three-digit separator that appears if number with many digits are displayed ( millions, billions). Since it is a financial calculator designed for money calculations, the comma can be helpful.

There is nothing in the manual that suggests that the three-digit separator can be removed. It can however be replaced by the point as in European Countries (especially France) where the decimal mark is the point and the three-digit separator the comma.

In short. I do not think you can get rid of the comma.

Hope you can learn to live with it.
