Select a blank cell, and type the formula =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"o","_",3) into it, and press the Enter key. See screenshot:
And now you will see the third “o” is replaced. See screenshot:
(1) In the formula =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"o","_",3), A1 is the cell you will replace string, o is the specified character you will replace, _ is the specified character you will replace with, and 3 means you will replace the 3rd occurrence of “o”.
(2) If you need to replace all occurrences of “o” with underline in the Cell A1, please apply this formula =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"o","_").
