I was doing some "pre" work last night on a Spanish-English Excel text and wanted to use the replace function to save some time. The problem is, I can;t cut and past terms into the Replace window and can;t write the accented characters in either. Help please!

Strange, I can both type accented chars and past into the excel S&R box.

Anyway, you can
- Try using the alt + number codes, see here:

- Copy the contents of your table to MS word or anything that can edit text and do the search and replace there, then copy/paste back to excel.

- Save the table as a CSV or TXT in excel, open with text editor, resave, open with excel.

Excel text - replace function Jul 25, 2008

Hi Juliana,

I don't think there is any posibility for that, I'm trying since many time to find a solution. The only way is to write the words once and use the copy-and-paste functions you've got in the Excel-menu or using the right mouse-clicks.

If somebody has a solution, I would like to know it either.
