In the Find & Replace dialogue, click More Options. You probably have "Regular expressions" ticked. Untick it and try again.
I DID try that in my office, but had no success. Now back home that worked.
Thank you.

The "same" applies to searching for "," and replace that by "." (of course, none of these searches uses the ")

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 see. That is very enlightening!
Setting the language under "Format cells" -> "numbers" to German now switches SOME (but not all) numbers like
"50,000" to "50.000"
(Some) Numbers appeaing on the screen as "50000" do not change at all.

The latter one being the German localization.
I am still fighting with the problem, that this works in some cells, but not all (probably because of the format of the entered data?). It would be helpful to find a way change the thousand separator for "," to "." and the decimal separator the other way around, because there are quite literally thousands of items that need to be changed that way ...

(But it is 2:30 am now and I think, I will continue trying tomorrow)
