carozzatorbus 0

Batch Replacer for MS Word is a plug-in which helps to make a multi-replacement operations in MS Word files with the help of the MS Excel list.

One can use it if Useful File Utilities have already been installed in the computer.

It can really save a great deal of time: no need to open each file and make the replacement and then open the other file and so on.

All can be done in a few seconds and as many files as you want may be involved.

Batch Replacer for MS Word offers such distinctive features as:

  • Support Unicode (foreign language) search and replace;
  • Multiple searches at one time;
  • Search and replace with all Word's options such as Case sensitive, Whole word, Controlcards etc.;
  • Ability to specify formatting for the searching/replacing text;
  • Ability to enable/disable search operation in the body of the document;
  • Ability to enable/disable search operation in the header/footer of the document;
  • Ability to enable/disable search operation in the footnotes of the document;
  • Ability to enable/disable search operation in the hyperlinks of the document;
  • Create backup files for the processed documents;
  • Save processed documents to the files which names generate by mask;
  • Complete program documentation.

How to use it:

  1. Create a MS Excel Translation Table. In column A enter the word or expression that should be replaced. In column B enter the word or expression it should be replaced by. The new word can be italicised or highlighted or can be printed in different colour or be bolded etc. in order to see it in the document when the replacement will be done.
  2. Select the needed files in the main program (UFU) – those, in which the replacement is to be done. The files can be selected by pressing "SPACE" (names of the files become red).
  3. Open Batch Replacer for MS Word in "Plug-ins" menu.
  4. Select the Translation Table created on the first step by pressing "Choose" in the "Translation Table" panel.
  5. "Advanced options" can be used before replace is started. Marking such points as "Set the same highlight" or "Set the same bold style" or some other, means making the style of new words in the document like in the MS Excel table (they will be highlighted and bolded). For example, if in column B of the Excel list there is the word hello (coloured and highlighted) and "Set the same highlight" and "Set the same colour" marked, this word in the document will look just the same - hello. But if these points aren’t marked, the word will look like the other words in the document, in which replacement should be done.
        Batch Replacer for MS Word has such advanced options as: size, highlight, name of font, color of font, Bold style, Italic style, Underline style.
  6. "Case sensitive": Batch Replacer will find and replace only words, that have the same form in letters (capital or small) as pointed in column A of MS Excel table table (for example, if there is "Hello" in Excel table and "hello" in the document, Batch Replacer won’t replace this word).
  7. "Use controlcards". That’s how it works: for example, the words "cat", "bat", "rat" should be replaced by the word "animal". No need to point all these words in column A of the Excel table – enter only "?at" and mark "Use controlcards". Attention, please! - All the words which have the ending "at" will be replaced!
  8. Having marked all the nescesary options, press "Start Replace".
  9. When the replacement is done, the statistics is shown: size before, size after, changed size, amount of changed words or expressions and status of the document (changed or unchanged).

So, if you work with hundreds of text files and you need to replace some text in them, Batch Replacer will do it for you in a second.

And now if you want to remove or change the banner on the number of pages, Batch Replacer will do it is a second. All you need is to input the banner code in the Find box and the replacement code.

Now we are present some examples for Batch Replacer.

Find String Replace String Comment
Set current date #DATE:FORMAT# Date expression allowing to insert current date instead of string which was found. FORMAT of the date can be described with special symbols which are:
yyyy - Displays the year as a four-digit number (0000-9999).
mm - Displays the month as a number with a leading zero (01-12). If the mm specifier immediately follows an h or hh specifier, the minute rather than the month is displayed.
mmmm - Displays the month as a full name (January-December).
dd - Displays the day as a number with a leading zero (01-31).
dddd - Displays the day as a full name (Sunday-Saturday).
hh - Displays the hour with a leading zero (00-23).
nn - Displays the minute with a leading zero (00-59).
ss - Displays the second with a leading zero (00-59).
am/pm Uses the 12-hour clock for the preceding h or hh specifier, and displays 'am' for any hour before noon, and 'pm' for any hour after noon. The am/pm specifier can use lower, upper, or mixed case, and the result is displayed accordingly.
So expression with date can look like #DATE:yyyy-mm-dd#
File_Name #FN# Replace "File_Name" string to actual file name.
File_Extension #FE# Replace "File_Extension" string to actual file extension.
s#*#d CD Find strings like sad or started and replace them to CD.

#*# means any symbols or no symbols. Therefore sd will be replaced to CD too.

#[0-9]# #U#digit Insert before every digit a phrase "digit".

#U# on the begining of the "Replace String" mean that all symbols after these 3 control symbols will inserted before the each "Find String".

#D# on the begining of the "Replace String" mean that all symbols after these 3 control symbols will inserted after the each "Find String".

#[A-Za-z0156]# #D#C Insert after each letter and after digits 0,1,5,6 the symbol C.
#[^0-9]# * Change all symbols which are not from 0 to 9 into asterisk character.
#[3-9],[A-Z]# #U#"," Any number 3 to 9 inclusive followed immediately by a capital letter will have "," inserted before the event.
#10# #13,10# This operation allows you to convert Linux text files to Windows text files. Because in Linux files the end of text string is contain only 1 symbol which have code 10 or xA. In windows files the end of the text string is contain two symbols 13 and 10. By performing this operation all symbols which have code 10 will replace to two symbols 13 and 10.

If you need to convert Windows files to Linux well, see next row in current table.

#13,10# #10# This operation allows you to convert Windows text files to Linux text files.
#13,xA,Xd,10# #13,10# Find CRLFCRLF and replace to CRLF. You can enter value in decimal or hexadecimal code. If entering the value in hexadecimal code then it must be preceded by an "x" or "X".
Gusta#?#son Gustavsson Find "Gustafson" or "Gustavson" or another words and replace to Gustavsson. "?" mean any character, which has code from 0 to 255.

If you want find and replace symbol "#" you need enter two successive "#" characters. Options Case sensitive apply only for normal text. If you enter this: St#82#ing (Symbol R has code 82), and case sensitive is unchecked, then program find this words : STRING, stRIng, sTRing and others, but can't find word - string, because symbol R in lower case.

*2*#32# #32# Replace two or more spaces to one space character.
*3*#13,10# #13,10# Replace three or more CRLF symbols to one CRLF.
*20*** * If you want find character "*" and replace to anything you must enter two successive "*" characters (Only in FindStr).
