I just used the new version of Numbers for the first time with some sheets I already used with previous version (it's a list of jobs I've done that I pass to my colleague that uses Excel) and I noticed a bug when I share (or I export) to Excel format (no matters if .xlsx or .xls):

Each cell where there's a value number with symbol (e.g.: "€ 50,00“) when in Excel appears with a "--2" after symbol (e.g.: "€--2 50,00") and cell is not in Value style but in "customized 1".

No matters if I use "thousand separator" and "value style" flags

What's the solution?

thanks a lot


here's an example
