    replace the comma separator to a dot and dot to a comma at the same time

    I have a set of data in Column A1 to A100

    i need a macro to replace the comma separator to a dot but at the same time, dot separator to a comma separator ?
    but if the number has only comma separator or only dot separator no action should be taken

    for example
    1,765.12 should be like 1.765,12

    but
    if the number contains only dot or only comma no action should be taken
    for example

    1765,12 number should not be changed




    please help

Poor thread titles, like Please Help, Urgent, Need Help, Formula Problem, Code Problem, and Need Advice will be addressed according to the OP's experience in the forum: If you have less than 10 posts, expect (and respond to) a request to change your thread title. If you have 10 or more posts, expect your post to be locked, so you can start a new thread with an appropriate title.

    Assuming the value you're starting with is text,

    =SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1, ",", "|"), ".", ","), "|", ".")
    Entia non sunt multiplicanda sine necessitate

    Sub commadot()
    Dim vyraz$, znak$
    Dim f!
    Dim g%, delkas%, jecarka%, jetecka%

    For f = 1 To 100
    vyraz = Range("a" & f)
    delkas = Len(vyraz)
    jecarka = InStr(vyraz, ",")
    jetecka = InStr(vyraz, ".")

    If jecarka And jetecka Then
    For g = 2 To Len(vyraz)
    znak = Mid(vyraz, g, 1)
    If znak = "," Then vyraz = Left(vyraz, g - 1) & "." & Right(vyraz, delkas - g): GoTo dalsi
    If znak = "." Then vyraz = Left(vyraz, g - 1) & "," & Right(vyraz, delkas - g)
    dalsi:
    Next g
    Range("a" & f) = vyraz
    End If

    Next f
    End Sub
