Excel 2003

Flexfind  v5.3, build 588 (27 Oct 2015, Downloaded: 49.520 times) See Screenshot

Flexfind eases searching throughout an entire workbook. Enter a string to search for and get a list of all found locations. Click on an entry to go there. Select workbook, sheet or range searching. Replace with another string in the found items you select. At your wish, get a confirmation for each occurrence found (also within one cell). MAC enabled (thanks to Matthew Henson). Ever needed to replace a company name in the title of 25 charts? Or replace just the third occurrence of a cell address in some cells' formulas? Or change a part of the header of 6 sheets? Flexfind enables you to do so.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for letting me know. It does not for me and my anti-virus does not find it problematic either (ESET SMart Security latest version).

Why can't I see this project in `VBA`? "Project is unviewable" !

Hi Alik,

Because the project has been protected using Unviewable+ :

Hi Alik,

If I may ask: Why do you want to unlock the VBA project?

I have 2 Add-ins (1 is yours `Flexfind` and 1 is my). They are used for `TabHome`. http://tiny.cc/4evq8y Right now I use 2 books http://tiny.cc/4hvq8y How can i drag-AND-drop your VBAProject to my WorkBook.XLAM Having all the add-ins in one WorkBook will be convenient for me!

»»» I hope you understand.

Hi Alik,

You mean you would prefer to have the flexfind button to appear in your own custom group on the Home tab, rather than in its own Flexfind group? I'm afraid that would require modification of the RibbonX code of Flexfind and the code behind and adding callbacks to find out if FF needs to display its group or not. I'm afraid I have no plans on making such a custom version available, I'm sorry.
