Search and Replace multiple Microsoft Word documents, change links and addresses
byDownload.com staff/ May 01, 2010
DataMystic's WordPipe is an enterprise-class search-and-replace utility for Microsoft Word documents. With it, you can search for and replace text, hyperlinks, contacts, drop-down fields, bookmarks, document properties, and more, in thousands of documents at once. It updates UNC paths when servers are renamed and automatically handles passwords and read-only files, too.
WordPipe's Evaluation version opens with a countdown nag screen. The program's main interface is a businesslike dialog with a few simple file menus, including a Help file, and basic control icons above a tabbed display. Add and Delete buttons below the main window make it easy to add entries to the list of items to replace on the Actions tab; the Files tab manages your searches and the Options tab accesses configurations. Some check boxes for search options and the main control buttons round out the interface. These control buttons, Replace and Find Only, initiate a search or the wholesale replacement of the items you've selected. We tried the scanner on the Options tab to find a saved Word doc to test and had WordPipe replace every instance of "it" with "ni," which it did while displaying a progress bar.
