How to search and replace text in an entire file

How to search and replace text in an entire file

How to search and replace text in an entire file

(OP)
How do I write a modual that will search for text then replace it?

(I want it to search the entire file.)

Thanks,
E.S.

RE: How to search and replace text in an entire file

You can create a macro that will do this.  Just go to Macros>Record Macro.  Once the macro is running, go to Edit>Replace and type in the criteria you want to search and what will replace it.
