Hi, I'm trying to sort on metadata a pdf on a number, but sometimes the numbers have a coma in it ex. (3,550) and it gives me an error(not numeric) how can I remove that coma from that number before I do the sort?

You would have to extract the metadata value into a variable/jobInfo.

Then, in a script, remove the comma from that variable.

After that, put back the new value into the metadata using the Metadata Fields Management plugin.
