You can maintain/change the number format as you wish by changing the “Region and Language” settings of your windows operating system. The purpose of this post is to learn to change the number format to Indian style without changing it in “Region and Language” settings. You can use the below number format for correct comma separation up to “99,99,99,999.99”:

[>=10000000]##\,##\,##\,##0.00;[>=100000]##\,##\,##0.00;##,##0.00

For more flexibility we may develop a macro to change the comma separation in Indian style.
