We also have properly how to use the Find and Replace. So I've got just a kind of a basic mess of a report. It will look better after we get done with it.

But we're wanting to actually, and what I've use this in the past is if you have a merger or something like that and you need to incorporate the documentation from the other merging company into yours, sometimes you need to go through and run Find and Replace to replace their company name with your company.

When you open up the document, Find and Replace is right on the Home tab. You've got quite a few different options. In all reality the easiest, hit Find and Replace. If you're trying to find something, you can find it.

I want to find Sandra. I just hit Find next. You'll see that my active cell now highlights Sandra down at the bottom. It's not going to technically replace it. But you'll see on the pop-up box that we do have a replace button.

So if I go over here, click on replace, now I can say what I want to replace it with. Maybe I misspelled Sandra. Maybe there's an H at the end or something. And so now I can hit replace. It'll replace that. It will move on to the next cell that has the word Sandra in it. And I can keep going through the document as you're running to just do Find and Replace throughout the document.
