How to remove decimal commas in indesign

I am working on a document with long lists of numbers which need to change from decimal commas to numbers without the commas and spaces instead e.g.  12,345,000 to 12 345 000.

Please can someone help? I am currently doing it manually and it is driving me up the wall, plus the chances of errors sneaking in is huge.

Thanks

Doret

You can run a find/change

Find 

,(?=\d)

Change

\s

 

Depending on the language you are working with, you may use a thin space instead of a regular space.

Hi @Dorasnora:

 

Building on @jmlevy's answer—be sure to choose the GREP tab (and not the Text tab) at the top of the Find/Change dialog box or it won't work.
