    Remove comma from string (xp)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29>

    I have a column containg a list of names. The surname is separated from the forename by a comma and a space (eg. Smith, John). Is there a way to quickly remove the commas from within the cells in the column?

    TIA

    Hi Rob,

    Good to see you online!

    Select the column.
    Select Edit | Replace...
    Enter a comma in the Find what box, and make sure that the Replace with box is empty.
    Click Replace All.

    Hi Hans

    Nice to be back.

    Thanks. It works a treat, of course. I did know this method but I suffered a mental block.
