Full Paper Review



Edwin Arthur Phillips, Plato, South Africa,


The use of current programmes created for the capture of numeric data and converting this data into the metric system. How the data is input into systems and the topic will be:”Know your Era Know your Data”.

The extract consists of the fact that in current times, we have lost the understanding of the use of the comma and period in number. I would like to bring to the attention of the industry that sometimes wrong decisions can cause wrong information input into systems and as such wrong data saved in databases. I will also show the difference in the use of the period and comma in different Era’s used in the South African context.
