Search and replace citations

10 November 2016 - 02:44 PM

I do like Find Everywhere and Search and Replace. Is there a way of uniting these two tools to change citation references? Finding things is easy, although the print of uses of a reference is no help at all; it just lists that (say) 24 of a particular citation are Out There but not saying where. S&R is also easy but it only works on certain items.


I'm renaming the references to a set of sources and would like to be able to change the page ref inside the source. To be specific the source is 'OPR Dingwall' containing hundreds of references of the form '029_CH62/1_Bv_1684', each used maybe a couple of dozen times for different people, and I want to change them to a new reference '062/00 0010 0030'.


I still haven't bitten the bullet to become a SQL expert; is this what I need to do now?
