Match all lines matching a string in Notepad++

I have a string which I need to find in all XML files. I am using notepad ++.

String:

<PARA APPLIC="ST2, LT5"><XREFEXT DATAREF="LRCS000005678" PARTTYPE="FIGURE" XIDTYPE="GRAPHIC"/></PARA>

Open in new window

I need to find all files which contain 'ST2' in PARA APPLIC and PARA element should be followed by XREFXT element with XIDTYPE="GRAPHIC"

Example:


<PARA APPLIC="XXX,"ST2","XXX"> followed by <XREFXT DATAREF="XXXXXXXXXXX" PARTTYPE="FIGURE" XIDTYPE="GRAPHIC"/></PARA>

Open in new window

'X' represents wild character.

ST2 can be anywhere places in the APPLIC example:

APPLIC="ABC, "ST2", "RT4"
APPLIC="ST2", "GHT", "HYT"
APPLIC="HYT", "ST2"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
