I've seen a workaround to this installing 2924 (english) as a secondary
language and setting it as default for those programs. Don't ask me how
that works, i've seen it implemented only.

I am working with a 3rd party product that uses an

I am trying to use it on a system in South America and I
think the application is confused because the percentages
are presented with commas where it expects decimal points.

For example, WRKDSKSTS shows:

Tamano % I/O Request Read Write Read Write %
Unid Tipo (M) Util Rqs Size (K) Rqs Rqs (K) (K) Busy
1 6717 7516 80,9 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 0
2 6717 7516 80,9 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 0
3 6717 7516 80,9 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 0
4 6717 7516 80,9 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 0
5 6717 7516 80,9 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 0

I want to prove that this is the issue by changing the "option" from
comma to decimal point.

I hoped that the system value QDECFMT was dictating the value but
changing it from 1 to 3 and back doesn't affect the presentation of

Does anyone know what is telling the OS to show the commas rather than
decimal points.
