Hi Dave,

I have a financial spreadsheet that was designed in the USA but I live
in the UK. Is there any way in LO to change all the cells that are
formatted as numeric $ amounts to be the same format but using the
equivalent numeric £ format instead?

I don't think there's any logic in the spreadsheet that depends on the
currency, it's just doing numerical calculations on the values. But it
would be easier to look at if it was in £ rather than $ everywhere!

I'd use a cell style for the currency formatted cells. Thus, changing currency symbol would simply summarize as changing the cell style format. This sheet would then easily adjust to any other currency you see fit.

Of course, this will give you some work to set each and every cell style, depending on the number of such formatted cells. (perhaps a search and replace would do, I have no time currently to check this, sorry)
