I have a variable that contains:


,Dine In,,,189,,,,,"$4,812.71",,,57.96%

,Take Out,,,72,,,,,"$1,676.43",,,20.19%

,3rd Party,,,54,,,,,"$1,779.35",,,21.43%



What is the best way to get 8303.32 from that last line.  Obviously, the
complexity is the commas and getting rid of the dollar sign as well.

I know I am going to kick myself when somebody answers.... I am blank this
morning.  (NEED MORE COFFEE!!!!!)
