Convert Special Characters Coma (,) to Point (.) only to errors

I am traying to correct the error where I have ( ,) and (. ) in my colum FC gross amount column. I want to repleace the 

(,) to (.) and disppear the (,) because I need to convert from text to number the column in order to do measures and make my query connect.

 

I want to combine two types of data the "correct" (-6,570.54) and those that are making my error "incorrect" (-74.505,74)

snnpnnncnn and sncnnn.nn   in the same file for example

-74.505,74
-6,570.54

 

I have tried:

  • replace values . with nothing
  • replace values , with .
  • change type to fixed decimal number

And it works for this case -74.505,74

 

BUT -6,570.54 changes to -657054 it erase the decimal 

 

Case 1 (Errors -74.505,74)

Hi @Aydeedglz ,

You can consider pressing '.' Split the columns so that you get two columns, one for the integer part and one for the decimal part, replacing the ',' in the decimal part and finally combining them into one column.

    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", type text}}),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Changed Type", "Column1", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter(".", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Column1.1", "Column1.2"}),
    #"Replaced Value" = Table.ReplaceValue(#"Split Column by Delimiter",",","",Replacer.ReplaceText,{"Column1.2"}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Replaced Value", "Custom", each [Column1.1] & "." & [Column1.2]),
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Column1.1", "Column1.2"})
in
    #"Removed Columns"
