Subject: converting string (spaces) to numeric
Has anyone ever converted a string to numeric (ie. '1 000 000' to 1000000).
I have a program I am trying to modify. The data has change. We use to
read the data string without any spaces but now it contains spaces.
I don't really want to do a do-loop and check for spaces but if it's the
only way, i guess i will have to.
