Currency: Input has no notation (123456) but need to Output currency (1234.56)

I am importing a large Text document and splitting up the data based on character positioning.


~12 columns of data have currency data formatted without any decimal notation.


I need to convert those columns so that when they ultimately feed the data back into Excel that they read the last two characters as the tenths and hundredths to properly format it as dollars and cents.


Simple example is that the input might read 000000123456. The "auto" transform during the split will convert that to 123456. What I need it to actually transforrm to is 1234.56.


I know that I can maually split each column 2 from the Right, then re-merge them with a period as a combining character, but it seems to me there has to be a simpler way to do this built into the transform somehow.


Thank you for any suggestions or guidance that can point me in the right direction.
