How didn't they work?  They should've worked for the question you asked....

translate() will do that,  for example:

translate(isbn/isbnprim, '-x', '')

However you might want to get rid of all non-numeric characters, in
which case replace() is best (in 2.0) or a different translate() in

It's probably best to fully define the problem first, so you know up
front exactly what you need... (rather than tacking on extra parts to
an existing solution)
