converting varchar to money part 2

Hello experts:

I orginally asked this question here:

Since then I'm having problems with this DTS.  It now fails on the line I use to convert my weird "0*100*0" rows to true money fields.  
This is the error I get now:  Cannot convert a char value to money. The char value has incorrect syntax.

This worked back when I first tried it and now I'm coming back to this DTS package and its failing on these conversions.  Any ideas?  I scanned the entire table looking for something out of the ordinary and I found nothing.  The fields in my temp table are in varchar format.  Final table is set to money.

What is the contents of the file?
Is the DTS trying to convert to money into the temp table directly?
are there any NULL values?
-- please, check rows returned from this
select * from SERVICEINVOICE
where isnumeric(cast(replace(replace(TXBL,'0*',''),'*0','') as money) / 100) <>1

angelIII:  You can see some examples of what's in the file in the link above.  The DTS is trying to convert to money on the insert/update statements.  Convert from the temp table to the final table.  I checked through 16k rows for anything out of the ordinary and couldn't find it.  I found one amount that was "23000*0*23500".  I didn't know if that would screw with the replace so I deleted that specific row and the insert still failed...

ill:  I will run your select shortly.

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

--when i'm looking at the statement now, i can see, that it solves nothing, as it already contains convert. This one may help you to detect "bad" lines
select * from SERVICEINVOICE
where isnumeric(replace(replace(TXBL,'0*',''),'*0','') ) <>1

Ok ill, I ran your select and it comes up with a line where the txbl field is "1450*0*45522"

I ran this across the 2 other columns that are using this same convert and I came up with more.  There are 3 lines in total that have more than one amount in these "0*0*0" columns...How can I get around this?
jay-areAuthor Commented:
How difficult would it be to add the amounts together in these 3 lines?
50*0*100 to 1.50

It seems to be a data error.  The user entered the amounts on the wrong line so I have these 3 lines with bad amounts...

Any ideas?
-- one more replace is needed as there is no "*0" in the field after replacing "0*"
update SERVICEINVOICE_final set TXBL = convert(money,cast(replace(replace(replace(serviceinvoice.TXBL,'0*',''),'*0',''),'*', '') as money) / 100,1) from serviceinvoice where serviceinvoice.ronum = serviceinvoice_final.ronum
