EU and US format in column numbers

Hi experts!

I have a column that contains a lot of numbers.

Here we can find both formats like:

  • .24
  • 0.24
  • 0,24
  • 10.08
  • 10,8

As you can see there is the deleminator "," and ".".

I know, we can do an replacement here of "." to ",", but is there any more professional way?

Best way would be to clean the data in the source, but this is not possible.

I would like to have all numbers in XX,XX

Hi @joshua1990 ,

 

Since you have a mix between dot and commas, I believe the best option is to make the replacement has you refer, there is an option to change type by locale, however you need to have the values standard otherwise you will get whole numbers where it should be decimal or vice-versa.

 

There is no problem in having additional steps on the query editor since the steps are made in order and don't impact the overall model in performance or other options.
