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?

Hi @Jacques B I am not sure what is the full use case however would it be possible to use a text field type instead of a number field which will result in exporting the field content as it is without any modifications in format.

Thanks @Esraa Mahmoud Atlassian support made a similar suggestion. Thing is we have many Issue that already use the existing numeric field, which I would like to be able to export.

Hi @Jacques B For existing issues you can copy the existing values to a new text type custom field and then export would be possible. 

If you are interested in doing that and you think it might work below are a couple of links that can help you with the procedure:

Hope that helps :)

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.
