Well, the best way would be open the solution in Visual studio, do a find replace and choose “entire solution” or “current project”.

Can you please elaborate on
"Display Name of fields" What are these fields.

You could probably look at setting the text of Labels using Resource file.

I have all the recommended display names to replace the current display names in the front end in all the aspx pages. My thinking is to open the aspx pages in notepad and do the Find and replace but that is not probably the best method.

Can't do that because..
                                <td style="width: 199px; height: 47px;" align="right" width="199">
                                    <asp:Label ID="Label16" runat="server" Font-Bold="True">Comment:</asp:Label>
                                </td>

Open in new window

As you can see there is no text property for the "Comment" field only the Display enclosed >Comment</

Can you provide some more clarity here.

Do you need to replace "Comment" with some recommended text? If so, why can't you do a find and replace? Honestly, it's not very clear to me as to what you are trying to do.
