Hey everybody!

I´m trying to open a segment in a RTF-document but I get this error message:

(50016): Don´t use; as list separator in style name. Change in Control Panel/Regional Setttings/Number

I´ve tried to save the document as a Word-document and then back to RTF but it doesn´t help.

Any clues what this can be?

Kind regards,

Well-documented issue Oct 21, 2004

Hi Christer,
There's a simple solution - all you need to do is to change the numerical separator in your system settings.

The required workaround can be found in this article on the Trados Knowledge Base - simply by entering the error number.


It's also a good idea to use the ProZ.com forum search - just try entering "separator", and you'll find a few threads where this issue was discussed previously.

HTH - best regards, Ralf

Just make sure that you return the original setting after you have finished the file.
The changed global setting may otherwise cause problems in other applications, such as Excel.
It amazes me that Trados still needs this solution because of sloppy format template creation.

Klas
