When I choose currency as the format of a cell, the default sign is EURO and 2 decimal points. How can i set the default to be the DOLLAR sign ($) and zero decimal points?

 

Thanks

Emile

Sergei. Thank you very much for your post. It worked!! I thought Excel had its own defaults, and that is what I couldn't find. Didn't think of looking a Windows settings. Thanks again
