  1. I never knew what find and replace was until this video, but that’s a wonderful and efficient function to use. It’s so much easier and takes less time. Thanks for the great lesson!

  2. Hi Habib,

    It is a very useful lesson. By using the Find and Replace function, I don’t need to change the words one by one by myself. It is a very convenient and efficient function. Moreover, by selecting the “Match Case” and “Match Entire Cell Contents” options, I would not make any mistakes while replacing the words.

    Thank you for sharing. It is a very useful lesson in my daily work. Thank you so much.

    All the best,


  3. Another fantastic lesson, Habib. Using find & replace in Excel is very useful and convenient and thank you for reminding us to ensure spelling is correct when performing this action.

    I really enjoyed learning about match case & match entire cell contents, as those actions can show some very interesting and important results.

    Thanks for this lesson and I look forward to your next one.

    All the best,


    • You’re very welcome Michael. Happy to hear you have understood the lesson fully, including the match case and match entire cell contents. Many more lessons are on their way. Take care 🙂

  4. I don’t expect to be using this a lot, so it’s good I have a reference now to turn to once I will need it. I tend to forget necessary actions, if I don’t do them a lot.
    Thanks, Habib!

    • You will forget it, if you don’t used it often, however, if you have truly understood a skill, then you shouldn’t ever forget it. Try and pause and replay the lesson video as often required, till you have understood it 100%. Take care 🙂
