Hello!

I wonder if there is any free find and replace utility that can simultaneously handle both Word and Excel files. (I installed the AKS text replacer and it seemed to work but the resulting file could not be opened after replacement...) Thank you!

Open Office might be a good choice, it can handle both Word and Excel file as create files in open office format or in Word and Excel, or even export files to PDF format
