Use the following procedure to search for and replace items in the dictionary. Since the replace operation changes the contents of your dictionary, you may want to perform a find operation first to verify the changes that will be made.
Choose Find from the Edit menu or click the Find button in the Resource Explorer.
In the Search String field, enter the text of the item you want to search for.
In the Replace String field, enter the text you want to replace each item that is found.
In the Look in drop-down list, choose one of the following items, indicating where you want to search:
All Dictionary Scripts Searches all scripts in the dictionary.
All Global Scripts Searches all global procedures and global functions in the dictionary.
All Form Scripts Searches the scripts attached to and contained within the forms in the dictionary.
All Messages Searches all of the message resources in the dictionary.
All Strings Searches all of the string resources in the dictionary.
Selected Form Scripts Searches the scripts attached to and contained within the forms you have selected in the Resource Explorer.
Selected Global Scripts Searches the global procedures and functions you have selected in the Resource Explorer.
You can specify the following options for the search:
Match Case Mark this option to have case considered when performing the search. The case must match exactly for an item to be found.
Match Whole Word Mark this option to find only whole words that match the Search String.
Compile After Replace Mark this option to have scripts automatically compiled after items in them have been replaced. This field is available only when you are performing a replace operation for scripts.
Click Replace to perform the replace operation. The results will appear at the bottom of the Resource Find window.
If you chose to compile scripts, and any compiling errors occurred, the Compile Messages window will be displayed.
To print the results of the Replace operation, click the Print button in the Resource Find window.
