STROFC #5 - "Documents and folders"
       #3 - "Search for documents"

This can be used to search all documents that contain text and build a list
of documents that contain your search text.  You can then edit each
document.  Build a macro for your search / replace.  Not exactly what you
were looking for, but a step in the right direction.

Since OV days are numbered, you should looking at replacing you help text
system with something not dependent on OV.

Subject: OfficeVision Help Documentation-Search and Replace across
Multipl e Documents.


I am a technical writer who is unfamiliar with OfficeVision. I've inherited
approximately 8,000 help documents in OV. I have many terminology changes to
make in all of these documents. Is there a way to search and replace all
terms in all documents at once? or at least each term in all documents at
once?

I've searched IBM's redbooks "AS/400 Using OfficeVision/400 Word
Processing." Here I found instructions on how to use search & replace as
well as perform text searches, but only within a given document.
 
I've searched the midrange-l archives, but posts using the terms -help text,
documentation, editing, search & replace- seemed to be referring to IBM's
documentation & help and editing code. I use the same terms, but refer to
what the end user will refer to for instructions.
