This method only works partially. When the number to be converted from European to American is less than 1.0 If it is >= 1.0 the number is converted to a whole number, so 0,01 ==> 0.01 (OK) but 1,257 ==> 1257 (NG)

Hi, ProfRay, in my version, windows 10 64 office 2016, above methods work correctly. You say change 1,257 to 1257, I do not understand, if you want to convert european to american, the number in european is shown as 1.257 but not 1,257, if you want to convert the 1,257 to 1.257, you need the formula about converting us number to european number. I have tested them again, they worked.

When I copy/paste the formula, the cell only says "#VALUE!"

I've confirmed I'm not copy/pasting any extra characters or spaces with the formula. I've tried adjusting the cell format to General, Text, Currency, and Accounting with no change. Any guidance?

Hi, which formula cannot work in your version. Take notes: the formula =NUMBERVALUE(A2,",",".") does not work in version ealier than Excel 2013.
