I want to change the thousands separator symbol and also the decimal symbol. Options do not appear in the file menu.

File tab --> option  --> Advanced

Under the editing options --> uncheck use system operator

then choose the symbol you want.

Thank you.

 

The problem is that in the file Menu I can't find options:

is there another way to find options??

Hi @Felipe_Villa 

 

What version of Excel you use?

 

 

Hi @Jihad Al-Jarady 

 

it's Excel 365 on the cloud. I'm not using desk app excel.

Hi @Felipe_Villa 

 

Try to use the shortcut ALT + T + O

or

Search for "Options" in the search box on the main screen top tab

@Felipe_Villa 

Excel Online takes regional setting of your OneDrive (or SharePoint site), you need to change them.
