Outlook 2007, can I edit all of my signatures at the same time.

I have about 50 signatures and they all need to be updated. Can I do this all at once or do I need to go into each one and copy and paste my changes?

RavenTim--"highlight the signature currently in use, then click the ‘Edit’ button"
Can't you highlight more than one signature at a time?

I suppose you could write a VBA script to do it for you. What are you trying to change in all of them?

RavenTim--- one procedure is
"How do I change my email signature?
Click on the ‘Tools’ menu at the top of your Outlook screen… then select ‘Options’. A new window will open… select the ‘Mail Format’ tab. In the ‘Signatures’ section of this tab, click the ‘Signatures’ button. Another small window will open… highlight the signature currently in use, then click the ‘Edit’ button… you will then be able to edit the text and formatting of your signature directly. When you are done, click ‘OK’ in all the windows until they are dismissed. Your new signature will be applied to emails from that moment on."

We use about 50 different 'signatures' that are related to sales & services for our business and we changed just a few lines at the bottom of the speil.  The sales manager is trying to find a way so he doesn't have to open and edit all 50 individually.

Raven you will need to write a VBA script to automate opening the signatures one by one and then editing it using either an InStr or a Replace function. If you have never used Visual Basic its a good chance to learn it.

Or you could proberbly get away with jus recording a macro to do it for you. Start recording the macro press ctl+f to bring up the find and type the whole sentance with the part you wish to change on (to ensure you dont replace anything you dont want to) and then type it back in. Click replace and stop the macro.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I just decided to update manually.  Like the VB idea, just don't have the time now to learn it.

Due to time, I wasn't able to go the VB route, however I did open the signature folders and copied the main signature item, then opened the others from the folder in rtf format and pasted the new item.
