Since years back I have copied my bank's digital
listing of my bank account(s); first using
MSOWord and later on MSOExcel. My intention is
to transform these listings so I can calculate
with the currency values in LibO-Calc. The
bank's table has four cols: colA=date,
colB&colC= text and colD is the currency as
text. Each listing consists of several hundreds
of events (rows). The problem is that the damn
bank -- against all standards -- gives the
currency values with a dot (".") as thousand
separator and "+" or "-" chars (plus or minus)
in the right end of each number (e.g. "987,65+",
"1.234,56-", "23.456,78+") -- which is against Calc's will.
By now I have managed to get LibO/Calc to accept
all values less than 9.999,99:

I'm not sure why you want to use Microsoft Word
or Excel. You can open a .doc file in
LibreOffice (as a text file) and copy and paste
the table into a spreadsheet there. You can open
an .xls file directly in LibreOffice. If your
bank's original data is plain text or web
material, you can import this directly into a LibreOffice spreadsheet.
What formula/function gives the same result for
the bank's currency values bigger than 9.999,99?
e.g. "11.222,33+", "11.222.333,44-"
It's a bit messy, but this should work:
Cannot get the Fixed() -- when trying to
eliminate the separator/dot that way -- working in this 'project' either.
This is no help. If you already had correctly
interpreted numbers (which you don't: that's the
problem), FIXED() would convert these to text
(with which you then couldn't calculate) -
exactly the opposite of what you are trying to
do. Once you have your real numbers, you can
control their appearance by choosing appropriate cell formats, of course.
I trust this helps.
