there are no such double brackets. But they are right in front of me

In the Find & Replace dialogue, click More Options. You probably have
"Regular expressions" ticked. Untick it and try again.
The "same" applies to searching for "," and replace that by "." (of

Remember that what you see in a spreadsheet cell may very well not be
there! If those commas are fractional separators in numbers - e.g.
1,23 - they are not there in the same sense as then would be as text.
The details of this depend on your locale settings.
I trust this helps.
