Find but not Replace

Post by msdm07777 » Thu Feb 19, 2009 7:54 pm

I am using advanced find and replace. It can find text but the replace function comes up with 0 files found. What is going on? This is very frusturating.

There are many possible reasons:
1. You may use Native option for Find and search, for example, for hello world
it's considered as hello OR world search. Then on Replace tab you search for hello world (it's considered as phrase). Thus on Find operation try Phrase search option.
2. On Replace operation your Search For text may contain trailing spaces. You should normally remove the spaces.

Please tell us what kind of files you are trying to search. Or it's better to send us ( a sample file and explain what do you want to find/replace.
