The US and the logical part of the world differ in notation of numbers. Everybody who made spreadsheet models to serve both sides know how much problems this can cause. At least it is something I never felt comfortable with..

Now, I have make a model in which one can choose between 'EURO' and 'US$", and between 'Metric' and 'Imperial'. Is there a way to toggle this from a macro connected to an Option Button? I realize this has to do with the local settings of windows, but it is all rather complicated. It would be great if the user does not even notice that internally, the model changes towards local preferences.

I hope I am not the only one struggling with this...
Many thanks,
Arie

IMO you should never change the windows settings without the users knowledge & permission. It will affect every application & could cause major problems.
