    This is SUCH a time saving solution. THANK YOU!
    One thing that may make it even better, is adding support for subdirectories. (That is: Files in multiple subdirectories)
    I am an absolute newbie in this, and don't know the syntax, the parameter, or where to add that.

    Could somebody help?

    @keyvan sorry, i was wrong. the problem is that the number is in the header and it seems that the trick is not working in header. if i open one of the files and activate the header then run the module it works but just in that specific file ,even if i select all the files. thanks again.

    @Paul Oz You can edit the footer by using almost identical code that the header uses. Copy everything from "Begin Header Updates" to "End Header Updates" and paste it directly after.

    Then, in this pasted section, find the word "wdSeekCurrentPageHeader" and change it to "wdSeekCurrentPageFooter".

    blue_crayon · 3 years ago
    @CC Was figuring out this issue myself, today.

    First, make sure you fix the line:

    Selection.Find.Replacement.Cle arFormatting

    To be:

    Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting

    Then, change the following line:

    If ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecialwdPane None Then

    To look like this:

    If ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial <> wdPaneNone Then


    The code should look like this in the end:

    Windows(GetStr(j)).Activate
    Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting

    If ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial <> wdPaneNone Then
    ActiveWindow.Panes(2).Close
    End If

    If ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdNormalView Or ActiveWindow. _
    ActivePane.View.Type = wdOutlineView Then
    ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.Type = wdPrintView
    End If

    I notice that there is a line "MatchWildcards = False", which implies that it's possible to use wildcards in the search text - is that possible and, if so, what's the protocol?

    Hi all,
    I am new to the whole VBA thing and I Love love love this code!
    I have 5000+ docs to review and if this works it will save heaps of time!
    I have the code above running however i can see that it does not cater for replacing text in footers, Only headers and the body of the doc.
    Can anyone assist in extending this to the entire document.
    P.S. not sure if this is relevant but the list of words that i need to replace is the same for headers, footers and the body...
    Any help would really be appreciated!

    Out of interest what does the line: Application.Run macroname:="NEW MACROS" do?
    The rest of the code makes sense to me (used to VBA in Excel) but I can't figure out why you need to execute another piece of code here.
    Thanks for the great tool though.

    I ran across this code while searching with DuckDuckGo. I modified it to suit my needs which were to other requests such as handling multiple search/replace in the header and multiple search/replace in the body. I also modified it handle the older .DOC format and the new .DOCX format. The modified code is pasted below. Feel free to use and improve!

    It is being sent in multiple parts because comments to this site can only be 2000 characters or less.

    This code has saved so much time for me... so, thanks!

    One thing though - is there any way to increase the number of words that the macro finds/replaces? I need to find/replace multiple paragraphs at once and the macro seems to have a limit of approximately 200 characters.

    Is it possible to tweak this macro to perform multiple 'find and replace' stances at once? There are several words and phareses I need to replace and as of now I need to reinsert the VBA code for every instance.

    I'm a noob regarding those things

    I've been testing it for the last few minutes and it's really a wonder, thank you!

    I need to perform several 'find and replace' routines for several files. Dozens of routines for dozens of files.

    Is there a way to 'save' the module so I don't need to paste it again on the VBA screen every time I need to perform a new routine?

    I am sorry but I have no idea re the headers or the format. It was not something I needed to include in my code. I had never used this before myself and the code I posted was taken from the original code above and then tweeked using code found in other searches until it worked. I am sorry I cant be of more help.

    Thanks for posting this! I've run a couple tests and gotten it to work for me; however, it's not working on text in headers and footers for some reason. Is there a fix for this?
