    GREP to replace text with a vector graphic?

    kmanlovetuthill Level 1

      I have a linked Excel file in a formatted InDesign file. I want to replace all the "Full" and "Half" text with either a small circle filled in or a small circle that is half filled. Would I be able to do this with GREP find/replace?

       

      Essentially I want the linked Excel "Full" text to show a vector or image of a full circle and the linked Excel "Half" text to show a half filled circle vector or image.

       

      I would rather not do this manually since this is a living, breathing document that is updated at least once quarterly, but I'm struggling to find an alternative method!
