    Re: Changing numerical formats

    hello
    try this one if the first number is in A1 -
    in B1==SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",""),",",".")*1
    the *1 will convert it to numbers. if the above are texts.


    edit:ooppsss. late again.
    or
    you may try changing the setting for decimal places in
    tools/options/international from commas to dots and save the document
    in this setting.
    I think people forget the word "THANK YOU!!!!" Do you still know it???

    There is a little star ( ADD REPUTATION ) below those person who helped you. Click it to say your "PRIVATE APPRECIATION TO THEIR EFFORT ON THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS "

    Regards,
    Vladimir

    Hi

    Change cell to number then in format cell uncheck the box marked use comma separator that should give you the desired result.
