    Semi Colon not Comma why

    I recently inherited a laptop from an employee who has resigned.

    The computer has Office 2016 installed, when I enter formulas there is a difference on my old 2010 Office Excel I used a comma (,) as a separator in formulas the 2016 uses a Semi Colon ( ; )

    Though it's not a problem I wondered why, is this standard in 2016?

    Re: Colon not Comma why

    Point of information: it's a semi-colon, not a colon.
