I am trying to use the script tool "Spline with Barriers" from arcgis 9.3 3D Analyst toolboxes. I am not getting expected output. The output is just only one value over the surface. We are using ArcGIS 9.3 in XP Remote Desktop and it is a German Version of Windows, so the system represents the decimal place as a comma. Is it possible to edit this tool to store the field values as 3.40 instead of 3,30?

    Are you sure this tool is a script tool? If I remember correct, this is a core ArcToolbox tool which is not exposed as a Python file. You cannot edit core GP tool. You should build either a model or a Python script that will pre-process input data to work with comma and points correctly. Playing with the OS Language and Region settings is another option.

If you right-click on a script tool in ArcToolbox and select "Edit", it should bring up the Python script in IDLE.

That being said, I don't know if that will be able to fix how the decimal point is represented within the ArcMap table (I've never worked much with localization). This StackOverflow question might get you further in the right direction.
