    replace nth occurrences of a character string within a cell...

    Hello,

    Can someone tell me how i would change the 1st 2 and last 3 occurrences of "-" to "<" in a cell?

    A cell example is below. I need one equation to do this.

    XXXX-XXX-XXX-X-X-X-XXX-XX-XX.X

    Turn this into

    XXXX<XXX<XXX-X-X-X<XXX<XX<XX.X

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks
