I am currently copying conversation statistics provided by Wireshark to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.

It seems that the column "Relative Start" is using a decimal point while the column "Duration" uses a comma.

What format is Wireshark using? Is there a way to change Wireshark's behavior? BTW, my system locale is set to German (decimal comma, digit separator is a point)

It looks like this was a Wireshark bug where the start time was being formatted as a string prior to being displayed/exported. I checked in a fix in r38948.
