SQL String

I need to add lines to a table using the SQL instruction (e.g.) "INSERT INTO table (Customer, Cost) VALUES ('Company', 235,35)" Where 235,25 is the total amount for this company, for instance.
The problem is that in regional definitions i've set the comma (,) as the decimal simbol because i need that way to other apps and i can't change it and the VB generates an error because we have 2 fileds and 3 values. Of course the 235,35 is 235 units and 35 decimals.how can i handle this problem without changing Regional settings?

You can simply use quotes!
Like this:
"INSERT INTO table (Customer, Cost)
VALUES ('Company', '235,35')"

BTW if you use a decimal 235.35, then SQL Server/ADO Provider will convert for any locality anyway...
