Hello guys:

I have received a file with some comments. Is it possible to change the
initials of the author?
E.g.: [AL1] to [Sales1] ... [AL2] to [Sales2]... etc.
Yes, I know what I have to do to change it before inserting comments, but
now I have a doc that already contains comments and I do not want to re-type
all comments... Is there a way to "find and replace?"

Thanks,

Peter

Hi, Peter. Try this:
Open the doc. Go to View-->Toolbars, Visual Basic. Hit the last button at
the right of that toolbar. Do a find/replace for the old author's name/new
author's name. Save and close.
