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. Christopher K.

Karen Herbelin - Readers Digest 3/2000 -----Original Message----- From: Horan, Patrice [mailto:PHoran@friedmancorp.com] Sent: Tuesday, January 02, 2001 6:57 AM To: 'MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com' 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. +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
