Default Adding in textboxes

Where I live we use , as decimal seperator and . as digit grouping symbol.So when I in my application write some like.

Text2 = Val(Text2) + (550 / 100)

things start to go wrong.
The first time I write to the textbox it shows 5,5 but the next time it is called it will show 10,5. I have tried to change the regional settings and then it works.
Is their a way to get around this without changing my regional settings?

Val recognizes only the . as decimal separator. Use CDbl instead.
