Hi!

 

How can something so simple prove to be so difficult? I've been trying to solve how to convert decimal points from imported excel files to commas so I can make some calculations. 

 

I've searched on line and the instructions I find are as follows: File > Options > Advanced (see attached file). I'm running Excel for Mac 2016. The thing is when I click on File I do not see an option to drill down to an Options function at all see file nr 2.

 

Grateful for some help
