Is there a way to (batch) replace text in a number of files that begins with the same three letters but ends differently?
In other words
search 'text blocks' "PGM (some numbers go here, they are different in every file)" replace "" (to get rid of the text)
Thanks

Hi Mark,

This seems quite straightforward:

batch process folder // or 'subfolders' for hierarchical process, or 'open docs' when no folder
search "PGM" and replace ""
//save


...should work as expected.

By default, TSAR look for any occurence. If you wanted to scan whole words only, you would simply say 'search "..." whole words replace "..." '

Robert

Thanks Robert. I wasn't clear on the "whole word" thing.
