The easiest is to create a view on the table that replaces the "." by " " wherever necessary, and the report can simply be based on the view.

I assume that you are working with Access? If yes, a "view" is named "Query" in Access in case you don't know.

Hope this helps, if you need more help, drop a comment
Cheers
