Assuming you want to change the decimal separator? If so, go to Tools -
Options - International tab, Uncheck Use System separators and change!

If you are importing the data you could temporarily change your Regional
Settings (or Excel Option) to have decimal separator as comma, import the
data and then reset the decimal separator to period.

If it is too late for this:
Let the number be in A1
In B1 extract the integer part with: =--MID(A1,1,FIND(",",A1)-1)
in C1 find the fractional part with: =--MID(A1,FIND(",",A1)+1,256)
Note that the double negation converts text to number
Combine the two in D1 with: =B1+C1/10^LEN(C1)

If you wish you can then copy the value in D1 and use Paste Special with
Values specified to turn the formula into a number. This lets you delete the
B and C stuff

Click the Office icon (colourful circle to the left on Ribbon)
Click Excel Options (bottom of Office dialog)
Click Advanced in the left side of Options dialog
Look at last item in the "Editing Options" group; this is where you set the
thousands and decimal separators
