    Question Please Help: Formula to replace a character in cell with VBA

    Hi

    I please need help with the following issue I am experiencing

    I want to replace a "." character in the value of the cell to "-" using VBA code
    I currently have the following code

    Sub ReplaceInSelection()

    Selection.Find(What:=".", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
    Selection.Replace What:=".", Replacement:="-", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False

    End Sub

    Will this work and how do I apply/call it on a cell value?

    Please advise me on this
    Thank you

    Yes, that code will change all "." in range. After placing the code into a VBA module, just manually select the region you want to change and run the macro. Does that work for you?

    substitute commas with semi-colons if your region settings requires
