I am new to formscape and want simply to take a text object and replace certain characters with other characters.. A simple replace function in any other language but in Formscape ???

For example when read in from a stream I could have a company name say U.K. Holdings  and I want to remove the fullstops. I know not strictly correct punctuation to do that but it ain't me that wants it !!
How do I do this in Formscape using what ?

Much obliged to all and any


RE: search and replace

use the convert stream object :

Convert Stream accepts a stream of text from the parent object and performs a find and replace operation on it. It then passes the resulting modified stream of text to its child object,
