If there a built-in "thousandths delimit" function that takes a number and inserts the appropriate delimiter (e.g. commas for USA). Alternately, does someone have an idea for a really fast and efficient custom function that does it? I have maybe a hundred thousand numbers at a time to convert and cannot think of how to do it reliably in less than a dozen lines of code.
Corollary to this question is, any way to read user's system preferences about which delimiter to use?
