Excel replace \, with ,

Posted 03 October 2018 - 02:48 AM

Not directly a programming question, but how do we use the replace dialog to replace \, with , ?

I understand that the backslash is probably treated as a "special character", but even find ~\, doesn't work.

Maybe escape the \? So \\,

Note that I am not positive that will work for you, but it is worth a try.

Edit, apparently the \ is not a significant symbol, and my replacement works now. There must have been some other cause.

Ah well, thank you, next time it happens I'll look for some other explanation.
