Flexfind: Search and replace made easy

What is FlexFind

Flexfind eases searching throughout an entire Excel 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).

Flexfind add-in for Excel

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.

Flexfind is free of charge and works in Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, 2021 and 365 both 32 and 64 bits.

I have recently installed FlexFind and find it very usefull. However, instead of activating FlexFind by clicking the button in the Add-ins tab of the ribbon, I am trying to activate it from a user-defined ribbon tab where I have collected many utilities that I use a lot. Therefore, I am missing the name of the VBA routine in FlexFind.xlam that starts the utility. I would really appreciate, if you can supply me with this routine name - if at all it is possible to call it from another VBA project.
Kind regards,

Hi Helge,

There should be a button on the far right of your home tab, perhaps you can add it to your QAT?

When I updated FlexFind build 590 to build 601 in Microsoft 365 Excel and now I'm getting the dreaded "Cannot run the macro 'FlexFind2007'. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled." I thought I was able to fix this on previous installations but can't get FlexFind to open no matter what I do with Options, Trust Center Settings, et al.
