Perhaps you wish to change a variable name from [Name of Client] to [Client Name]. Perhaps you want to change the enclosing brackets from '[' and ']' to something else.
Perhaps you want to change the word "Executor" as it appears in your estate planning documents to "Personal Representative."
Making changes such as these within a single document is pretty easy. Just use Word's Find and Replace function and you can accomplish the task in short order.
But if [Name of Client] appears in dozens of document, and dozens of places within each document, you will want to make those changes using a tool than provides a more global scope. Pathagoras gives you 2 pretty powerful tools. Its built in Search and Replace tool and one that may surprise you -- the Instant Database.
