I don't know which particular calculator model you have, but for an HP-12C, the manual says the following:

**Digit Separators **

As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display. When the calculator is first turned on after coming from the factory - or after Continuous Memory is reset - the decimal point in displayed numbers is a dot, and the separator between each group of three digits is a comma. If you wish, you can set the calculator to display

a comma for the decimal point and a dot for the three-digit separator. To do so, turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the [.] key while you press [ON]. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

Hello,

Here is what the manual for the HP 12C Platimum financial calculator says on page 17 of 275

*As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display.

Check to see if the calculator is in European mode where the comma is sometimes used rather than the period.

It's been awhile since I used one of these but there should be a decimal function on the keys. Make sure you put a 2 in there before pressing it and it should display the format using 200.00

To change the ´comma´, make sure the calculator is switched to off, press (.) key and maintain, switch the calculator ON. This operation changes dot to comma and vice-versa.

Turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the .(decimal key) while you press the on button. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display
