It's not quite that simple. The feature you want does exist in RoboHelp 8, it is called Find and Replace in Files and is on the Edit menu. The problem is the search is confined to single lines, which is the case with many text editors as well. If you can be certain the find string will always be on one line, proceed with caution as the find works at code level.
If you need something that works across multiple line, you need something like FAR or dnGrep.
Do back up your project first though. These tools can wreck a project faster than they can do what you want.

Ok - thanks both.
I think the Find and Replace in Files function will probably work for my requirements but will ensure I take backups at each step.
