Search and Replace Text

 

Purpose

Find and replace any part of a text, whether whole words, partial worlds, or phrases.

 

Tips

  • This is similar to any search and replace function you would find in word processor or spreadsheet.
  • If you have a short list of words to search and replace, just specify them in the task configuration.
  • If you have a long list of words to search and replace, then it is best to prepare a list and import it as a reference Data Source.
  • You can chose to replace the search string with text, a new-line, or a space (blank).
  • In the advanced options you can specify if the search should be case sensitive or if the search should be whole-word match only.

 

Examples

  1. Expand common abbreviations such as:
    • Find “V.P.” and “VP” and replace it with “Vice President”
    • Find “SFO” and replace it with “San Francisco”
  2. Bulk changes such as:
    • Find “China, Hong Kong, Taiwan” and replace it with “Greater China”
    • Find “DF16” and replace it with “Dreamforce 2016”
