Formatting of field (price) when exporting to Excel

Good day,

We have an Issue with a Custom Field called Price and it was created as Type Number Field.

In the Issue the value is: 1,455,635.04

When we export the report to Excel the value in the cell is given as 1.45563504e+06


Can we configure the export functionality in Jira to make the Excel file useful?

It does not seem like an issue in export from jira, rather how the number format is used in your excel.
Please try changing the number format in the your excel for that particular column & you can should be able to get the data in desired format.

Hope this helps!


Thanks @Barnali Putatunda 


I think it is a bit of both. Jira uses a dot as decimal separator (##.##) and Excel is expecting a comma (##,##) based on the OS localisation.

If I could set Jira to also use a comma it should help immensely.
