Removing Decimals and Commas from a value

Discussion in 'Information Technology' started by Send Object Command - Two attachments, Nov 11, 2005.

  1. How can I remove comma's and decimals from a certain value using a formula in
    a query?
    Example: 2,352.00
    Result: 235200

    Try this

    In SQL
    Select Round([FieldName],2)*100 As Newumber From TableName

    In the query it will look like
    NewNumber: Round([FieldName],2)*100

    You can do it in two steps: first remove commas, then dots, using the
    replace function. Here's an example that will work:

    SELECT Table1.original, Replace([original],",","") AS no_commas,
    Replace([no_commas],".","") AS no_dots
    FROM Table1;

    There might be a way to do it in one step, but I can't think of it right
    off.

    First question. Is the subject a number or is it really text?

    If it is a number, then it sounds like a formatting issue.

    This is what I got to work late last night:
    Val(Replace(Replace([FieldName],".",""),",","."))

    Thanks to all

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
