French Number format to Indian Number format


Convert data in the format 99.999.999,88 to 99,999,999.88 i.e French system to British System

Background

We in India (and most of the world) follow number format where we use comma [,] for separator and Full stop [.] for decimal separator.

Excel will recognise the following type of data as number and let you use to perform numerical calculations like SUM, AVERAGE, MAX and so on.
eg -   8,00,660.78
eg - 99,00,780.34
eg -         3489.8980

But if you export data from a ERP which is setup in one of the following country,
  • Canadian
  • Danish
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
the number will be in following format
eg -   8.00.660,78
eg - 99.00.80,34
eg -         3489,8980
Excel will consider them as Text and will not let you use them for performing numerical calculations like SUM, AVERAGE, MAX and so on.

Use

The AdarshFrenchToIndian User Defined function will help you convert French number format to Indian number format.
