Error 6000: Value Must Be Valid Decimal Number

Value must represent a valid decimal number (e.g., 3.66 or 4.0)

This error occurs when you use invalid characters to represent a decimal. Common reasons why this may be the case include:

  • Utilizing the European convention of a comma (,) rather than a period (.) to represent the decimal point. For example, listing 0,4 to represent four tenths rather than 0.4.
To resolve this error, you should:
  • Modify your file by including a period (.) as the decimal point.
  • Save your changes.
  • Resubmit your file.
