I'm hoping there is a really obvious answer for this. I'm currently translating a lengthy Excel file using SDLX 2006. There are quite a lot of numbers in the file which all appear as discreet segments (i.e., no text at all - just the number). Is there any way of automatically confirming all of these segments? I kind of resent having to hit the enter key a few hundred times, and although I could just leave them unconfirmed, that makes it difficult for me to check that the rest of the translation has actually been completed.
I've tried changing the AutoMatch options, reapplyng the TM etc. but no luck, so any help would be really appreciated.

TM apply; Autopropagate
Feb 22, 2008
just use the "apply TM" before you start translating. This should get you rid of such number phrases. After the apply, they should appear in golden color. Also make sure you have enabled the autopropagate function.
Thanks for that, but I'm afraid I'd tried that already and it doesn't work. I'm not sure if it's something to do with the original file (an Excel spreadsheet), although I can't think of what it migh be.
