Find and replace.
Make sure that it is set to search in formula (you may need to click the options>> button)

Find and Replace is best.  I will add to etech0's suggestion that you may want to set the options to work within the entire workbook and also set the case to match, just as an extra precaution.

I wouldn't set it to run in the whole workbook unless you want all the occurrences of ABCD to be changed to ABCD1.
Match case is a good idea.
