Here's another one:

function removeCommas tData
    set the itemdelimiter to quote
    repeat for each item i in tData
       add 1 to iCount
       put i into tItem
       if iCount mod 2 = 0 then replace comma with empty in tItem
       put tItem after nData
    end repeat
    return nData
end removeCommas

Best,

Mark
