Automated replacing of commas by dots

Automated replacing of commas by dots

Postby VolkerW » 06.18.14 10:33 am

Hi,
I just purchased the Text Automator Action Pack and tried to build a workflow that opens .dat files in TextEdit, replaces all commas in the documents by dots, and finally saves and closes the files. But unfortunately I was not successful but received cryptic error messages.
Can anybody give me a hint how such a workflow might look like in Automator?
Thanks,
Volker

Hopefully, these will help point you in the right direction.
