(Read-only) The THOUSANDSCHAR option is the value specified for the NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS option discussed in NLS Options.
The value of THOUSANDSCHAR only affects the way Oracle OLAP formats numbers in output. It does not affect the way numbers should be formatted for input.
The DECIMALCHAR option lets you check the value of the decimal marker.
