I have received a data file feed that is a little peculiar. The last
field holds a currency value, represented adequately in the table as a
double. But the file, as received, is formatted as a float preceeded
by a '$' character. I resolved the issue temporarily by just using
Notepad and searching for '$0', and replacing all instances found by
'0'. I expect this would become tedious and error prone if this had to
be done on a daily basis. Is there a simpler, more reliabel way:
perhaps a format specifier for that one field only? I haven't found
anything useful related to this in the reference manual, but it is
possible I looked in the wrong area.
