Lesson 6. Finding and Replacing Text > Finding and Replacing Text

Finding and Replacing Text

Word's Replace command enables you to search for instances of text and replace them with new text. To replace text, click Edit, Replace, or press Ctrl+H. The Replace tab of the Find and Replace dialog box appears (see Figure 6.3). You can access the Find tab from the Replace tab, and vice versa, by clicking the corresponding tab. Then, to find and replace text:

  1. In the Find What text box, enter the text you want to replace.

  2. In the Replace With text box, enter the replacement text.

  3. Click the More button (if necessary) and specify search options as explained in the previous section.

  4. Click Find Next to locate and highlight the first instance of the target text. Then:

    • Click Replace to replace the highlighted instance of the target text, then locate the next instance of it.

    • Click Find Next to leave the highlighted instance of the target text unchanged and to locate the next instance.

    • Click Replace All to replace all instances of the target text in the entire document.
