    Is it not as simple as going to Edit, Replace and putting . in the 'find what' and , in the 'replace with' boxes?

    Re: Number Formatting

    you can try going to Tools >International

    uncheck the Use System Separators

    and in the Decimal Separator, instead of "."
    type in ","


    hope this helps
    Cheers

    You could use a custom format to change the display.

    However, if you replace a decimal with a , in the cell itself 2000.05 with become text (left aligned).

    So, s custom number format or regional settings is the way to go probably.
