folks

in my vb macro I am using the readline method that copies an entire row/line from a text file, how can I remove comma's from being carred into the line? the problem is that some of my rows contain comma's and seeing that I an writing the readline value into a text file with additional data's delimited with a comma from eachother which causes confusion

all help will do

depending on the purpose of the commas, you may want to use the above but replace with tabs instead of empty-string:

var = replace(var,",",vbTab)

Or you may want to break the pieces up into parts and apply them in different ways as individual values:

Dim items() As String
Dim itemCntr As Integer

items = Split(inputlineText, ",")
For itemCntr=0 to UBound(items)
  Debug.Print items(itemCntr)' or other code to do something with the item
Next
