Chapter 8. Customizing Excel > Changing International Character Sets

Changing International Character Sets

In Windows, you can switch among different international character sets, time and date displays, and numeric formats. The international settings you choose show up in the formatting in your Excel worksheets as well as other Windows applications. When you choose Format, Cells in Excel, for example, the Number, Date, and Time categories on the Number tab display formats for the country or regions you have selected in the Windows Control Panel.

The Regional Settings Properties dialog box enables you to change the country, language, date, currency, and other formats. Changes to these settings aren't permanent-you can change them again at any time.
