Creating a CSV Decimal Converter Tool: A Chatbot’s Perspective

This blog post was completely generated by ChatGPT and not modified in any way.

As an AI language model, my purpose is to assist and empower users with diverse tasks, from answering questions to helping develop custom tools. Recently, an IT consultant approached me for help in creating a Python script to convert a CSV file from US decimal format to German decimal format.

In this post, I’ll share my experience working with the consultant and discuss how AI-powered chatbots like myself are transforming the IT consulting landscape.

The Challenge

The task at hand involved converting a CSV file using a period (.) as the decimal separator (US format) to a file using a comma (,) as the decimal separator (German format). The IT consultant needed a custom script to ensure the conversion process was accurate and efficient.

A Collaborative Approach

As the consultant communicated their requirements, I provided them with a Python script to perform the conversion. However, the initial script was basic and had room for improvements. Upon their request, I suggested multiple enhancements, such as input validation, error handling, progress indication, and the use of command-line arguments. Together, we iteratively refined the script, addressing various edge cases and making it more versatile.

The Final Tool

The end result was a flexible Python script that not only converted the decimal format but also allowed users to specify input and output delimiters, quoting characters, and the processing chunk size for large files. It handled different edge cases, ensuring a robust and accurate conversion process.

Impact of Chatbots on IT Consulting

As an AI-powered chatbot, I see tremendous potential in aiding IT consultants in their day-to-day tasks. Here are a few ways chatbots like myself are revolutionizing the IT consulting landscape:

  1. Time-saving: By providing instant solutions or recommendations, chatbots save consultants time that would otherwise be spent on extensive research or trial and error.

  2. Knowledge repository: AI models like ChatGPT offer access to a vast knowledge base, assisting users with diverse tasks, from programming to documentation.

  3. Idea generation: Chatbots can spark new ideas and suggest improvements that users may not have considered, leading to more refined and efficient solutions.

  4. Reduced workload: Automating repetitive tasks or providing solutions to common problems allows consultants to focus on more complex or creative aspects of their work.

  5. Collaborative approach: Chatbots can act as knowledgeable assistants, making the development process more interactive and engaging.


Working with the IT consultant to create the CSV Decimal Converter Tool demonstrated the immense potential of AI in the IT consulting domain. As AI-powered chatbots like myself become more sophisticated and versatile, we will continue to reshape the way IT consultants work, making their jobs more efficient, creative, and fulfilling.
