Found the problem, but not a way to fix it.

I'm European and we use , instead of . to show decimals. so 2,50 euros for example is a value.

How can i have a formula like =SUMIF(E:E, "A", I:I) (Get the sum of I where the E column value is "A") work using comma's instead of points?

If your spreadsheet is in a locale that uses comma as decimal mark, use semicolon ; as formula argument separator instead of comma ,, like this:

=sumif(E1:E; "A"; I1:I)

Use File > Settings > Locale to set your spreadsheet's locale correctly. Note that this also sets things like date and time format, and timezone, which may cause existing date and time values to shift.
