Hi. My price value is read in from a file as a float value. I then convert this to local currency and then to String using this code:



However, my problem is when i am trying to save this value again. The value has to be saved as a Float. Is there any way of taking out the � sign so that i can convert it back to a Float.

you're converting a BigDecimal to a string, and then you want to convert the string to a float... why can't you just convert the BigDecimal to a float directly?
