How to find and replace multiple values at once in Excel?
As we all known, we can use Find and Replace function to find multiple same cell and replace them with a value as you need. But sometimes, you need to apply many-to-many replacement simultaneously. For example, I have a range of data, and now I want to replace all Apples to Red Apples, Oranges to Green Oranges, Bananas to Yellow Bananas and so on as following screenshots shown, do you have any good ideas to solve this task in Excel?
If you are tired of find and replace the values time and time again, the following VBA code can help you to replace multiple values with your needed texts at once.
