The value of the AlternateNormalizationFormat property indicates the normalization format used to format the AlternateText property. It is one of the following possible normalization formats.

When NormalizationFormat property is AlternateNormalizationFormat.Number, "." is used to indicate the decimal separator, and a leading "-" indicates that the number is negative.

When NormalizationFormat is AlternateNormalizationFormat.Currency, "." is used to indicate the decimal separator, a leading "-" indicates that the number is negative, and the text following the last digit is the currency symbol.

When NormalizationFormat is AlternateNormalizationFormat.Date, the result is "YYYY-MM-DD", where "YYYY" is the Gregorian year (0-padded), "MM" is the numerical month (0-padded), and "DD" is the day (0-padded).

When NormalizationFormat is AlternateNormalizationFormat.Time, the result is "HH:MM:SS", where "HH" is the hour in 24-hour time (0-padded) (0-23), "MM" is the minute (0-padded), and "SS" is the seconds (0-padded).
