Data Cleansing flexability

Data Cleansing Tool:   There should be a sub-category on the "Punctuation" cleansing.  Ideally to have an option to "Include Only" or conversely "Exclude these characters" which would allow you for example to remove all characters except   "." from a dollar formatted field .  There are times when you need to clean almost everything except a certain punctuation or not.

That would be nice ! I often use the replace function instead, because I have to remove some punctuation characters but not all !

I agree with this improvement for a better user experience but to be honest, I think the Data Cleansing tool should be simplified in the backend. Currently, this tool works fine for small datasets but lose a lot of performance for bigger datasets which makes better to rebuild it with formulas instead to work faster in such cases.
