Hai Team
i am not able to search the "," or "." in the below case in a cell.

000.460.50.48,001.460.15.48,001.460.16.48 - this is in General format, - Tried with "2. In the opening Find and Replace dialog box and under the Replace tab, you need to:" didn't work.

My requirement is to convert "000.460.50.48,001.460.15.48,001.460.16.48" to

000.460.50.48
001.460.15.48
001.460.16.48
