    HI ,

    This is a work out which can solve your problem if your issue is still open

    Please try the below steps

    To replace pound values with $ or a meaningful description. To do this, attach your code directly to a query using a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro. You can use this feature only with Excel workbooks. Run your query and follow menu path Tools>Macro>Visual Basic Editor

    If you have not used Visual Basic or VBA before, talk to someone who has before you perform this step. Remember to save your query as a workbook to ensure the system invokes your VBA code and replaces your numbers when the workbook refreshes.

    Dim x as range

    For Each x In resultArea

    If x.Value = "#" Then

    x.Value = "$"

    End If

    Next X
