using currency and % formats in excell formulas

Last Modified: 2015-03-29
I developped my models starting with excell 97

I have plenty of formulas in which I use : ... &text(cell reference;"#.##0,00 €").

This is a common  format in Belgium to show values in €-currency as e.g. 1.234.567,89 €

Recently, they sold my a new pc with windows 8 and  excell 2013 . In this version this doesn't work. The result is a kind of nonsens text, not even a value.

The same problem occurs with : ... &text(cell reference;"#.##0,00 %"), This is a common used format in Belgium to show values in €-currency as e.g. 12,34 %

Thx for your help
