I've said this time and again on various mediums lately but I have yet to see the now famous 8.5.2 FP3 iNotes formula error:

Image:8.5.2 FP3 iNotes issue - maybe a i18n issue with number formatting

At first I though it was because I was using the English as my language, but that was not the case as several on Twitter had the issue but were using English. Well I was close but no cigar. Based on this technote it looks like the issue maybe with locales that use a period or full stop (.) as the thousands separator maybe causing the issue. For some (according to the TN) changing the separator to a comma (,) may have fixed the issue.

As usual YMMV.

Oh and keep an eye on that TN as it will be updated with further information (hint, a fix) as it becomes available.

... and I can absolutely not understand, why this issue occurs again in the 8.5.2 codestream. Do the teams not talk to each other ?

I spent 3 weeks with several developers to locate the error in the forms85.nsf in 8.5.3 CD3.

PS.: no responsibility is taken for the correctness of this information.

If you’re planning on installing fixpack 3 on a server that’s also used for iNotes, make sure you test that functionality before rolling it out to your users!
