Recently I have working on a large project which involves hundreds of word .doc files. The translations firm has built a glossary. But as we translate, we feel that translations of some keywords should be changed.

Yes, I simply need to hit "ctrl+H" and pick "replace all". But it is such a headache to open all files one by one to repeat the same operation. I need a program that does multple file replacing.

Finally I got some time to make this little program (special thanks to Ibrahim Elnazak and Brad Martinez). It's developed out of Ibrahim (Ibby) Elnazak's Macro code (http://word.mvps.org/faqs/macrosvba/BatchFR.htm)

The program should run properly if you have VB6 runtime and Microsoft Office installed on your computer. I hope you will find it useful.

Good night!

Thanks a lot, Dallas for sharing your effort. We all have been through this problem at least for once, and surely it is incessant.
