Uploading multiple 'changed' files (by date) or from site-wide (find/replace) updates?

Hello,
I have tried searching for a solution but to no avail.

My scenario is this: I perform a find/replace and the result is 34 updated documents. The documents are displayed in the 'Results' tab. **I would like to know how I can upload these files efficiently, without locating or opening each individually and then uploading, individually.**  I know I can select all of them [from the Results] and clicking 'Open', but I would still have to Upload (Shift+U) each file individually.  This is obviouslly time consuming, especially if it happens several times a day, ane moreso if there are bigger results; say over 100 effected files.

I was hoping that some bright individual might suggest a solution to uploading all of the files from the 'Results' tab, or the equivalent.

In the meantime I may try using a seperate FTP program as an ad hoc solution; I would load the site in say CuteFTP, apply a file fiter (say *.asp) and then upload all the .asp files. Not very efficient mind, but it would get the job done. Of course, I would love a solution that allows me to do this through Dreamweaver.

Thanks in advance to all those that have read this, your time is appreciated!

Gary

Hi Genersys,

The Synchronize command is what you need to use.  Just Synchronize the entire site and upload newer files from Local.

Jason,
Many thanks for the answer. This is a good solution, not what I was expecting but I am very glad you have brought the benefits of 'Synchronisation' to my attention, I am sure it will save me time in the future.

Thank you!
