Just to clarify, are the affected values OpenLAB CDS 2.3 all custom parameters?
yes - the number formats in setting up custom parameters and the report itself seem to be different:
I need to set up the parameter using "," as comma - a "." does not work:
If I recall the value in the report I get:
...15 instead of 1.5 as I would expect (number format of data is using "." as comma separator...:

Thank you for the detailed explanation. My question was more focused towards sample or compound customer parameters defined on the project level, not report parameters.
For customer parameters, their values are saved as strings by OpenLAB CDS. This then causes the issues when numeric values are formatted with commas instead of decimals.
A workaround for this is to set up a custom calculation file in the method that will call the custom parameter value correctly. For example, if you have a sample custom parameter named MaxTailing, the following expression in a CCF linked to the method would resolve this problem:
You can then call the result of this custom calculation on your report:
That might work for you if you are able to switch from a report custom parameter to a project customer parameter.
Ah, now I get what you mean, sorry...
Thanks for the workaround - not really a solution for our "problem", unfortunately, as I'm restricted to custom report parameters in this case. Might come in handy for other situations, though.
