For some reason I am unable to replace the Degree symbol with the field calculator.  I'm guessing it has something to do with the formatting of the degree symbol.

This does not work

!Mapping_Angle!.replace("°", "-")

UPDATE:  Problem solved, found an easy workaround.  Since this did not work, I just used Excel to find and replace all degree signs with a dash.  It's not so picky.
