The script only works in the folder selected. Not in its subfolders. . I suppose this is perfectly correct. The script opens file by file doing the replaces and many of my files hace codes and fields to be updated. But goes well anyway. Obviously this limits because I think is not good maintain opened a huge amount of files in replace action waiting for my decision.... Below a window that appear in almost any of my word files.Batch Word Text Replacer
I usually doc format in general. Recently I observ that I even can save as a docx file and allow me to make the fusion/combination of fields from Goldmine 5.5 (a CRM I use many years ago, a legacy version) . In the experiment after modify the script only find and replace in the doc files, not in the docx files.
So a possible modification of the script is the ability to process doc and docx files.
Note : sorry I need a new glasses. I will try doc? and comment .
