    I'm sorry, but this is a missing feature at the moment. It is something I still need to add (or pull requests that add this ability are welcome!).

    Is there an update for this? I'm getting in excel from 15000.23 => 1500023
    because by native decimal separator is ","

    Sorry no. It will work correctly with a period for the decimal place and a comma for the thousands separator, but not yet the other way around. That is something that will be added in future.

    Hi,
    Did you solve this issue?

    Thanks,

    No - when it has been resolved I will post back. If you need this change urgently, the software is open source and any modifications you make would be welcome upstream.

    I hate to ask, but do you have an update on this? I tried looking at the code to fix this, but my javascript-skills areby no means good enough for this.

    One of the reasons for this issue is the definition of the _excelSpecials array in buttons.html5.js: it assumes that the decimal separator is always a '.'.

    In the same file, around line 1074, a similar thing is done to remove the thousand-separator: in this case it removes the decimal separator instead.

    Again, I'd love to help fix this, but my skills are not good enoug for a clean fix...
