Same as this one: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=43574

Except that I'm from Denmark. The generated sql (grabbed from the query log) looks like this:

		    3 Query	INSERT INTO `product`(
`Price`) VALUES (
'A new product', 

How to repeat:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `blah`.`product`;
CREATE TABLE  `blah`.`product` (
  `Id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `Name` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
  `Price` double NOT NULL,

Suggested fix:
Make decimal values always use dot instead of comma, as the comma is always used to separate multiple values.

Hi Gert and thanks for your report. I was about to test it but I hit Bug#44460... Will see how to test this next week.

Hi Gert. I would like you to attach small but complete test case demonstrating this behavior. In the meantime, I'll look for localized version of Windows with comma as decimal separator.

Hi again. I was just wondering if you can see the example project I submitted? I set it to only be visible to developers, although I can't remember why... :)

Yes Gert, I see it :-). So far I simply had no time to check on your report. Will do after vacation.

True, verified as described using test case attached.

I changed my locale to use decimal comma, modified AssemblyInfo.cs, [assembly: AssemblyCulture("")] to "sl" and "de" (both using decimal comma) and added MySQL assemblies to Web.config:
	<add assembly="MySql.Data.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"/> (instead of System.Data.EntityClient)
	<add assembly="MySql.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"/>
but to no avail...

Server Error in '/' Application.

This differs from Bug#43574 in that DOUBLE and not decimal is used. As I can not access the patch right now I guess only decimal was handled in it.

      - fixed formatting of single, double, and decimal values when used with entity framework
        in cultures that use the comma as a decimal separator (bug #44455)
[10 Aug 2009 17:39] Reggie Burnett
fixed in 6.0.5 and 6.1.1
[11 Aug 2009 10:30] Tony Bedford
An entry was added to the 6.0.5 and 6.1.1 changelog:

Errors occurred when using the Entity Framework with cultures that used a comma as the decimal separator. This was because the formatting for SINGLE, DOUBLE and DECIMAL values was not handled correctly.
