Automatically replacing decimal tab character

I have a Writer document with hundreds of paragraphs (inside tables) that have decimal tab stops. The tab stops have a period as the decimal character. I need to replace period with comma in all numbers so that the numbers are still aligned at commas. For this I probably need to change the character of each decimal tab stop because if I simply replace a period with a comma inside a number in text, the alignment is lost. I have already changed the decimal character at Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages > Decimal separator key to comma, but it does not affect the existing tab stops in the document. Is there a way to change the decimal character of all existing tab stops?
