Substitute_Comma2Decimal

Should be used when display language setting is ENGLISH and the import has brought in numeric data as character due to the comma. This script converts values with  comma seperator to decimal seperator and changes the data type to continuous.  

 

THIS SCRIPT WILL NOT WORK FOR GERMAN (or other) LANGUAGE SETTING

You will find the script to convert in the other direction commented or under this script in file exchange (Substitute_Decimal2Comma.jsl).

 

There are three files:

  • "HowTo" document "Commal2Decimal.doc"
  • The script file itself "Substitute_Comma2Decimal.jsl"
  • Example Data Table to be used to test the script "Decimal_Comma.jmp"

You might want to use it as base and change the script to fullfill your needs.
