One often overlooked feature in word processing programs like Word, WordPerfect and even Microsoft Works is the Find and Replace function. It is used to locate and replace a frequent use of a word with a different word in a document. You might use it if you right contracts, leases or some other long document and need to make a quick change. Here’s how to use it:
- Open your document in your word processor
- Click Edit –>Replace from the menus
- Type a word or phrase in the "Find" box
- Type the word or phrase that you want to replace the found word with in the "Replace" box
- Click Replace All
That’s it! Give it a try the next time you need to make a few adjustments in a document.
