MY CSV format as Encoding 1252 (ANSI - Latin l)

output the same as above.

"Killos";"water";83.33;83.33
"Killos";"gas";100;100

After changing column type as text in .xls tile then output like below.

"Killos";"water";83.3333358764648;83.3333358764648
"Killos";"gas";100;100

I have tried to save EXecl format as UTF-8 as well. Output the same as above.

As per document I have tried all the character sets as follows but output the same as above. nothing changing.

Character Set Index
Windows-1250/WinLatin 2 (Central European) 33
Windows-1252/WinLatin 1 (Western) 1

Commands are as follow:

for input in /test/test_file.xls; do unoconv -f csv -e FilterOptions="59,34,1,0" --stdout $input | tail -n +6; done > /test/model.csv

for input in /test/test_file.xls; do unoconv -f csv -e FilterOptions="59,34,33,0" --stdout $input | tail -n +6; done > /test/model.csv

I was wondering how you are getting the right values? I am sorry guys keep on asking help. I tried my best but somehow I was missing something. I couldn't identify that.
Note: - You all are tried to help but no luck from the side. This is the last attempt on this thread if not able to get it then we can close this thread.
You're still not paying attention.

AGAIN: **WHY** can you not use sed or tr to simply replace the "." with "," in your output file, after you generate it???
AGAIN: I used your sample data, and had no problems.
AGAIN: What is the number format set to in the Excel spreadsheet???

If you're not going to answer, there isn't much point in posting.

Can you please leave me the exact syntax will try it once. I mean we have to apply on the entire CSV file?

sed '/[0-9]\./s/\./,/g'

AGAIN: I used your sample data, and had no problems.

Ya, I was wonder how it is working for you?

AGAIN: What is the number format set to in the Excel spreadsheet???
It number format in excel spreadsheet. I tried to change text format in excel both outputs are the same.

No, sorry...after five pages and two threads, it is time you actually try to show your own effort. There are *THOUSANDS* of examples of both sed and tr being used to replace things in files, and their man pages tell you how as well. YOU, PERSONALLY, need to show some effort on your own project. Want to change a whole file? Look at the "-i" option for sed. And are you actually thinking about what you're doing with the sed statement above and what you're feeding into it??? You only want to replace the dots...so why are you putting a regex for numbers? There are NO OTHER PERIODS in the file, other than those in the number field.

Because, **AGAIN**, I checked the Excel file number format.

Hard to believe that, since it worked for me.

Thumbs up

Thanks for your response and for providing hints to solve this issue. We have applied awk command to replace "." to "," and it is working fine. Thank you again for your wonderful support. I marked as solved this thread.

What would be helpful for reference is if you over-viewed the awk commands you used to solve your problem.
