Find/replace in multiple files

Hi all -

I have selected a directory which I want to search. It contains file-types which are included in the mask. I have supplied a search word using the prefixing "+". I have suppled a replace term. (I have also tried this with all combinations of using the "+" / not using the "+").

I have checked the box for 'Search in Subfolders' (there are many folders in the chosen directory, and many files which I know contain the search string). I am using v2.3 of "Advanced Find & Replace", in Windows 2000.

When I click "Execute", I receive only the message: 'Found 0 files of 2'.

What am I missing/doing wrong?

Thanks very much,

Could you send us a sample file and default.cfg file
(located in C:\Program Files\Advanced Find and Replace )

The issue has been with Mask field.
You used:

But you should use:

So you have to separate masks by (;) and not by comma (,)

Then you should search for SBC
you don't need to use (+) before SBC

Problem Solved
