Using REGEX with Find and Replace in Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to replace things with REGEX.

    For example, I am going through a word document right now looking for all 3 letter words using <???> I would like to add two zeros at the end of these words.

    What would I put in the the "replace with:" field to add two zeros to each word?

  • Use (<???>) to find with Use Wildcards switched on, and \100 to replace.

  • Awesome! Thank you. I wasn't putting the paranthesis in the find field so I kept getting an error telling me "the replace with text contains a group number which is out of range"

    Appreciate the help!
