Description charles 2017-05-13 08:25:30 UTC
Trying to run a VLOOKUP. When creating I follow the format as shown in the help files and use the semicolon where shown. Upon entering the formula the semicolons change to a comma. The results match nothing.

Hi Charles,

Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages
I guess you have English(USA) in 'User interface' and 
something else in 'Locale setting'. Is it True? Which language are you using?
Verify 'Same as locale as setting' behind 'Decimal separator key'. Is this ticked?

Else, did you change something into:
LibreOffice Calc > Formula > Separators?

Do you get the same result with an other formula, like SUM().
