    In the money, but none the richer [CS3,JS]

      I've extracted a story from ID, put all the pounds sterling into an array and am stepping through it, converting to the euro values.

       

      So on each iteration I end up with two variables, poundsToChange (£500,000) and euroSum (€556421 ... I know, far too much detail, but I'll get round to simplification when I've got the basics working)

       

      For simplicity's sake, I'm using JS' replace command, but nothing is happening...

       

      var changeToEuros = textToSearch.replace(/poundsToChange/g, euroSum);

       

      Is this because the variables' names are being searched for in stead of their contents? If so, is there a fix for this?

       

      While I'm here, in order to do the conversion I've had to remove the commas from the thousands, hundreds of thousand etc. Does anyone have a handy function to which I could entrust my millions and get my commas back?

       

      With all these riches about, all I can offer is my gratitude...
