I regularly find myself using Microsoft Word’s Find & Replace feature to clean up or “fix” various types of documents. And I thought I was using it to pretty near it’s maximum capacity. Well, it turns out there is MUCH more it can do that I didn’t even know about. I love these kinds of discoveries.
In the course of filtering my incoming feeds, etc. I stumbled across this article which led me to this absolute gem. My learning engine is revving as I anticipate learning an even more powerful skill than I even thought possible.
This is an example of using find and replace to transform text like this “John Q. Doe” into “Doe, John Q.” with a Replace All action. Cool.
