Find & Replace Attributes

The Find & Replace tool provides settings to search and/or replace attribute values and properties contained in the MAP Attributes panel. Note that only values in visible columns can be found and/or replaced.

Using Find & Replace

Click the Find & Replace button at the bottom of the MAP Attributes panel or choose it from the panel options menu.

Find Only

Click the Find tab and enter the search criteria directly into the Find what entry field (previous criteria can be selected from the list). A search may be performed on all attributes by default, or only on specific columns contained within the MAP Attributes panel by enabling the Just option and choosing a column from the list. Criteria may be further refined by enabling the Case sensitive and Match whole word only options.

 

Click the Find Next button to perform the search. Search results can be seen in the MAP Attributes panel; the column header and row number containing the first matching record will be displayed in bold text. At this point, a search for individual records can be done again by clicking the Find Next button.

Find & Replace

To replace records selected through the Find operation click the Replace tab. Find & Replace criteria can be typed directly into the Find what and Replace with entry fields (previous criteria can be selected from the lists). A find and replace may be performed on all attributes by default, or only on specific columns contained within the MAP Attributes panel by enabling the Just option and choosing a column from the list. Criteria may be further refined by enabling the Case sensitive and Match whole word only options.

 

There are two methods to replace values. The first method requires approving each replacement manually by clicking the Replace button so that each instance of the attribute located via the search parameters is successively replaced in the map attribute table. The second method allows for the replacement of all found records simultaneously, accomplished by clicking the Replace All button.
