I am using textpad and need to delete everything within quotes like below.

this is the current code
<OrderDocumentCode Code="00000000" />

this is what i need it to look like.
<OrderDocumentCode Code="" />

There are other quotes in the document so it would need to include the tag OrderDocumentCode

Thanks in advance

Why not simply:
Find what: <OrderDocumentCode Code="\d*" />
Replace with: <OrderDocumentCode Code="" />

You're basically deleting something, so the groups are not really necessary.

HTH,
Dan

This solution combined with Configure, Preferences, Editor. Check "Use POSIX..." worked. Thank you so much.
