    Replace comma on dot

    Hi Folks,

    I have problem with data type.
    I use data in worksheet from url location and all values which are updated come with
    comma separator (polish decimal system use comma instead of dot as separator),
    I use in my excel english decimal separator which is dot.
    Now I would like to replace commas with dots but the problem is that data are constantly
    updating so every time when that happen I have comma in updated data.

    Can anyone advise or help me with macro or function please?

    You may be able to find a setting in your data source properties which allows you to set that. Otherwise, try referencing your source with =substitute(<cell>,",",".") copied down (you should definitely be able to set your data range properties so this formula is copied down according to the size of the import.

    hi makbos...

    Just watch if you need to change also . to ,

    For example: 12.131,22 to 12,131.22

    you'll need spmething like: =SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1;".";"@");",";".");"@";",")

    Hi Cheeky Charlie,

    I don't see anything where I can define data format in data range properties,
    please take a look in attachment.
    About your second solution where I should use this code?

    Put it in a column next to your data extract copied down the length og the extract (and put a tick in the box on the bottom of the window you posted a picture of).
