You basic problem with the PHP_EOL is that when echo'ed out, it represents a \n character.
The value you are working with might be \n\r or just \r

I read the links you sent, plus some others. It took me awhile, but I get it now. If the "return character" that was entered into that field is not the same as what PHP_EOL is looking for, it won't work.

$parts = preg_split('|[\n\r]+|', $item['unitprice']);

preg_split works perfectly! Very similar to Perl's split function. Here's what I have now:

$parts = preg_split('|\s+|', $item['unitprice']);
$price = '$'.number_format((count($parts) > 1) ? $parts[(count($parts)-1)] : $parts[0],2);

Clean and concise. Thanks a million, Jim! I really appreciate your helpful responses.

Thanks again,
