Dear statalisters,

I`d really appreciate if someone could help me with a little 

string problem.
I want to replace commas "," by dots ".".
The "," occurs in different positions in the string such as

29,6
9,62
389,0

I`d like to convert this data to ...

29.6
9.62
389.0

(...in order to destring the data afterwards).

Could anyone help me with this replace problem? 

Thank you very much for your help.
Ben
