Description michaelmccann 2008-06-05 17:56:01 UTC
I high lighted a few cells, selected 'Find & Replace' from 'Edit' menu. Filled 
in the 'Find' parameter, and the 'Repace With' parameter, clicked 'Repace All', 
and the program changed ALL of the find parameter throughout the document, not 
just in my high lighted cells.

Hi michaelmccann ,

I'm glad to tell you it isn't a issue. Please open the 'Find & Replace' and 
click "More Options" button, then select the "Current selection only" check 
box If you just want to change the area you have selected.

As JiMing said, this is not a defect.

But if it's posible to make it a enhancement? Because if a user select a area, 
usually, he(she) intend to search in the area.
This can be divided into 2 conditions:
1. No area selected or select all: disable "current selection only" check box, 
search entire sheet(or all sheets, depend on the selection of "Search in all 
2. Area selected: Enable "Current selection only" checkbox and check it by 

At present, "Current selection only" checkbox are disabled when selected area 
contains no data. If we persist this feature, maybe we need a confirmation from 
user which is a bit complex.

What do you think about this ideal? Frank?
