I am writing a program that opens and reads all the files in a directory one at a time and if any occurences of the following are found, then the month is incremented by +1. also, if the current year is other than 2008, replace with current year.
'20080301'
'2008-08-18
'200808%'
'2008-08-01'
'200808
I've tried the System.Text.RegularExpressions and the replace() methods, but wanted to know if someone had a better approach.

Thanks in advance

I think you are already using a good method. The regular expression is the answer to matching multiple words to a pattern. And the replace function would obviously do the actual replacing of the word for you.
