The only "magic" one I know about is asterisk.

When EDITing data and changing a long string of data where the from/to values exceed the COMMAND line, you can do
FIND 'a super duper long string of data'
the long string and then do
CHANGE * 'replacement very long string'
where the asterisk represents the previously found data string.
Regards,

Bill Dennis

This is not a chat room. . .

Please do not use "chat room slang" anywhere in the forum. This may be ok at your job's e-mail or school or when texting friends, but the intention of the forum is to be more professional.

Thank you.
