I currently do “CTRL & F” to find details in the current TAB ?

How can I do a “Global Find” in Microsoft Excel 2007 that searches all TABS, not just the active TAB ?

1) Go down to the bottom of the Excel window where you see the sheet tabs ("Sheet1" "Sheet2" etc.). Right-click on one of the sheet tabs.

2) In the shortcut menu that appears, click Select All Sheets.

You've now entered what's called "Group mode." Excel gives two visual cues to let you know you're in Group mode. First, the word "[Group]" appears in the title bar at the top of the screen. Second, the sheet tabs at the bottom of the screen turn white. (The currently active sheet is bolded.)

3) Press Ctrl/F to bring up the Find and Replace box.
