When European number separators are used in an Excel spreadsheet (for example, "1.234,567") and the spreadsheet is placed into an Adobeﾮ InDesignﾮ 2.0 document, the number separators are imported incorrectly. For example, "1.234,567" is imported as "1,234.567." The Excel Import Filter Update resolves this issue.
