Patrice, Without being able to answer your question specifically, you should know that IBM is dropping support OV as of V4R5. Perhaps you or your company should seriously consider converting your OV docs en masse to some other current format (i.e., Word for Windows) - there is at least one third-party product to do this. Dan Bale IT - AS/400 Handleman Company 248-362-4400 Ext. 4952 -------------------------- Original Message -------------------------- 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. I've also posted this same question to a help authoring listserve. I received two replies. One said that I was asking for the impossible-I could only manually search for and replace each word in each document with OV. The second reply said that he had used OV to do a search and replace across multiple documents, but it was "so long ago" he didn't remember the how to details. He encouraged me to do further digging. I'd appreciate any help you could offer on how to do a search and replace across multiple documents. Thanks.
