    Converting lots of money (2000)

    I receive data from another system, with amounts formatted as, for example, 1.000.000,00. That is, an americanized format, which displays as text. How can I easily convert this to 1,000,000.00 such that it becomes a number? Andy.

    That sounds like a Dutch format (comma as decimal separator) to me.

    Try highlighting the numbers, then hit control-h (replace), let it search for a dot and replace with nothing.
    Next replace comma's with dots.
