Trouble with rickworld\FindAndReplace9 for Access 2007

F&R9 doesn't appear to work with Access 2007 as with 2003. It only finds strings in Macros (not in Tables or elsewhere).

Anyone had any experience with this and overcome it??

Try to download the latest version 9 from the website.

What is your OS?

I have it working for Access 2007 and windows 7.

Hmm...  

That's helpful hnasr.  Thanks for your quick response.

I'll try to reinstall tonight and see what happens.  I also have windows 7.

This is the version you want:

http://www.rickworld.com/beta

*Do Not* let the word 'beta' scare you. It's only because there is one minor unresolved issue with Macros in A2007/10 that Rick has not been able to workaround.  I've been using F&R for 18 years, and I am currently beta testing the A2010 version.

Thanks DatabaseMX. I tried the beta, carefully following it's unique installation requirements. Still no go.

Could it be me? Am I the only one using FR who's having this problem?  Starting to think so.

Rick earlier suggested reinstalling Access. Tried that too.

This is terrible.  I love this product. Access is not the same without it.

Can you elaborate more on exactly what the problem is ?  Specific examples.  Maybe upload an ACCDB that I can test on my A2010 system ?

Hi MX.

The attached doesn't contain Macros, so it's not the best example. Still, what happes is I get the ususal search screen, and run my search. I only get a pop-up that says Search Completed, but no search results. If I log the results, the log is empty.

HOWEVER, in those mdbs with Macros, any Macros (only) containing the search string are reported.  In those cases, there are match reults in the log and in a pop-up window.Go figure!

There's something about an exception for Macros in Access 2007 on Ricksworld. Don't now remember the details. I've tried to follow that instruction to rule it out as the culprit, and Rick didn't (automatically)  link the two issues when I inquired, but it's curious.

Thanks very much for your continued intrest. [Embeded file:372116]

It is working with your database!

I replaced field name Check with Checks and back to Check.

Thanks for your interest and help.  I must be doing something wrong. Never managed to make it work.

"Don't now remember the details."
Yes ... there is still some anomaly (also in A2010) with Macros. So, Rick did respond ?

Also, if ... you can supply a db to Rick with the issue, I'm sure he would be interested, as I would also.  Would like to get this resolved for you ...
