I have a txt file with a lot of [urlid=12345] (the 12345 can be any sequence of numbers, and it's not only 5 numbers, could be 3, 6, etc). I need to replace all those with the actual URL's that they reference, which I have in an excel file with two columns: urlid and url. The urlid column matches the urlid in [urlid=12345] in the txt file, and the url column contains the url I need to replace every [urlid=12345] with in the txt file.
