Hi all,

When I use the 'Raster to ASCII' Conversion tool, my txt or ascii output file is created with comma separators.

I will use the output in another software which only reads files that are point separated. 

How can I change the tool set-up (or the ArcGIS set-up) so that the output file created is point separated instead of comma separated?

I have already changed the set-up of my computer in Control Panel so the default is point separated. 

Thank you in advance.

Start, Control Panel, Region, Formats, Additional... comma to point   at least in windows 10

Hi Dan,

I have tried that,however, for the 'raster to ASCII' conversion tool, I have the outputs with comma separators.

It is only a problem with this particular tool because the other GIS tools have outputs with point separator. I do not know why. 

Could you think of any other reasons this could happen?

This is my control panel set up:

I can't think why, unless the localisation is being read somehow

You were right about the localisation being read.

I tried changing the format to English (UK), so that the decimals are point separated as a default. 

Now I have the point sepators for my output!

Thank you Dan!
