I have the following code in about 2000 HTML files, I need to replace it with some other code(static). But the problem in following code is the ID click=12FA863 is change and different in each file. I want to use the regular expression which will work in Find and replace in Dreamweaver.

Can anyone suggest me the expression like: [Start Text] [Anything] [End Text]

So that I can search for: <iframe src [Anything] </iframe>
<iframe src="http://example.net/?click=12FA863" width=1 height=1 style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute"></iframe>

You don't need a regular expression if you are searching for a tag.

Instead, set the F/R dialog box to use Specific Tag and go from there.
