Find and Replace in Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What I am trying to do is replace text in the text name field with other text.  The problem is I can't get Find What to use the wildcard *.  I would like to list one or two characters and then a wildcard so that the whole name (not just the one or two characters) will be replaced with the Replace With.  I have Project Pro 2010.

  • Vassily,

    Let's assume you want to find and replace all task names that contain "Project - xx". In the Find window use the following

    *pr*

    Test test needs to be either "equals" or "does not equal"

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. I didn't know this so I did a Google search. I found the answer on the following webpage: http://books.google.com/books?id=jN0Aj8YCMhMC&pg=PA56&lpg=PA56&dq=wildcard+character+for+ms+project&source=bl&ots=iyDuuPeJbq&sig=xxhTIstmre8rLcv-KpZbW88epMk&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Ugo_T63uGeXXiQLX6eCGAQ&ved=0CFgQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q&f=false
