Change Language in Filemaker Database?

Hi,

 

I have a preexisting database that was created on a computer with French as the default language. I am making some changes, and keep running into issues with the European numbering conventions affecting the calculations. (ie. the decimal and the thousands indicator are opposite). I've manually changed the field format of all referenced fields to have English as the default language but it still does the calculation as if the numbering convention was European.

In addition, the format of my computer is as follows, so I'm quite confused why filemaker is doing the calculations with the opposite number separators.

There was a lot of work done on this original file so I'm hoping that I can change the language of the file? Any help would be much appreciated!!

 

Thanks,

Bree
