I have a column in Excel where values are inserted as decimals, and decimals are presented by the (,) separator. Whenever I am trying to sum the values of the column, I am getting the wrong answer because decimal values are not stored with a (.) separator. I need to know how I can sum the decimal values of multiple rows by using the (,) separator.




Sum = 46.30 expected 

What I have tried:

SELECT Data.P,,Data.comp,SUM(Switch(Data.Sens='D',1, Data.Sens='C', -1, TRUE, 1)* Data.Montant) AS Montant FROM data.txt

See VBA Macros - Region and Language[^] for how to modify locale settings.
