How to quickly find and replace in multiple opened Excel files?
In Excel, you can use the Find and Replace feature to find and replace a word across multiple sheets or the whole workbook, but if you want to find and replace a word in multiple opened workbooks, the built-in feature of Excel cannot help you. Here I introduce a handy Excel add-in tool – Kutools for you to quickly solve it.
1. Open the workbooks you want to find and replace a certain word in at once time.
2. Click Kutools > Navigation to enable the Navigation pane, then click Find and Replace button to go to Find and Replace section. See screenshot:
3. Under Replace tab, type the finding text and replacing text into Find what textbox and Replace with textboxes then choose All workbooks from the Within drop-down list. See screenshot:
Tip: If you can’t find out the Within drop down list and Workbooks list, please click the enpand button to expand the advanced Find and Replace options. See below screenshot:
5. Click Replace All. Then the texts in all opened workbooks are replaced.
Note: In default, the shortcuts for enabling the Kutools' Find and Replace dialog is Win + Shift + Q, but if you are familiar with the shortcut Ctrl + F, you can go to setting to check Pressing Ctrl + F to apply Find and Replace of Kutools option , and then when you press Ctrl + F, this Find and Replace dialog pops out.
With Kutools for Excel’s Navigation pane, you can toggle between two worksheets, list all sheets, columns and names, add the pictures or formulas you usually use into the favorites and so on. For more details about Navigation pane, please click here.
