WordPipe Find and Replace for Word to migrate Microsoft Word hyperlinks
when you rename file servers, to translate files by applying massive search/replace
lists, or find and replace
your organization's name, address, website etc across thousands of worksheets
WordPipe is designed as a hands-off tool requiring next to no user
intervention, as you would expect for migrating large numbers of files. It
copes with a myriad range of Microsoft Word bugs, such as restarting
Microsoft Word every 1000 documents to avoid memory errors. It also copes
with the largest variety of problem documents of any tool, ranging from
password protected and corrupted documents to SharePoint locked
To use WordPipe, you simply add a list of
search/replace pairs, and for each one, specify where in the document it
should be found. Then you tell it which files to process - that's it!

Biztree is the maker of Business-in-a-Box, the World's leading
business & legal forms software. Our library contains over 1,500 documents
in 4 different languages - it's over 15,000 pages of content. So no need to
say that when we need to apply changes to all our documents, doing it
manually is a Herculean task!
I first discovered WordPipe about 3
years ago. I had tried different tools but nothing was working fine; these
other softwares were making our computers crash or even worst, corrupted the
documents. I was so happy after I bought WordPipe, what a great product! It
helped us save tens of hours of boring and unproductive work. The software
was very good at that time but I just upgraded to the latest version and it
is even better! It is SUPER stable and quicker than ever. I recommend
WordPipe to anybody who has to make bulk changes in Word - at this price you
can't afford not to use it.

|I actually went on line 10 minutes after trying the demo
and bought the full version. This thing is great!
I figured in the first
job that I used it on I did the job for 50% of the cost of the soft dollars
it would have taken to do it manually.
494 files changed in about 20 minutes........I'm tickled to death.
