how to find and replace text

Post by ted7 » Wed Jul 16, 2008 6:15 pm

Dear AFR users,

I am totally confused. Please hgelp.

I need to replace "F:\" with "E:\" in about 150 files text files.

I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

Here's what I am doing:

1. Search in: Folders
2. Mask: *.txt
3. Search Path: (I indicate the folder in which the text files are located)
4. Under the "Replace" Tab and "Text to find", I typed "F:\"
5. Under the "Replace" Tab and "Replace/Insert by Text", I typed "E:\"
6. Then I hit the "Execute" button

in the lower left hand corner of the screen I get: "Found 0 files of 0 in 661 msecs.

What am I dpoing wornd or not doing right?

Thanks!!!!!
Ted
