Hi Li,

many thanks for the immediate reply!

Unfortunately, this doesn't help. Ok, it's completely my fault that I
did't explain my problem more detailed.

So, I have a variable name "dealvalue" in string format  with 72914
observations!!!

These observations are numbers but each observation has a different
number of digits.
For example:

2.964.52
1.229.357.80
1.376.146.80
279.161.53
856.551.10

3.669.70
3.153.20
30.882.40
12.858.29
41.284.40

14.504.50
1.531.50

17.823.72
-1
9.009.00

I would like the "," to specify the decimals and the "." to be used
for the 1000 separator.

Hence, these numbers i would like to appear like :

2.964,52
1.229.357,80
1.376.146,80
279.161,53
856.551,10

3.669,70
3.153,20
30.882,40
12.858,29
41.284,40

14.504,50
1.531,50

17.823,72
-1,00
9.009,00

This is just a sample!!! I need a command to do it automatically for
all the observations.

Thanks again!!
