Flexfind: Search and replace made easy

For Microsoft Excel

Is free of charge and works in Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

if you really like it:

Excel 2007-2016

Flexfind2007  v5.3, build 596 (Jan 16, 2019, Downloaded: 36.270 times)

This is the 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 version, cannot be used with older versions. See below for more information on the tool.

Excel 2003

Flexfind  v5.3, build 588 (27 Oct 2015, Downloaded: 49.105 times) See Screenshot

Flexfind eases searching throughout an entire workbook. Enter a string to search for and get a list of all found locations. Click on an entry to go there. Select workbook, sheet or range searching. Replace with another string in the found items you select. At your wish, get a confirmation for each occurrence found (also within one cell). MAC enabled (thanks to Matthew Henson). Ever needed to replace a company name in the title of 25 charts? Or replace just the third occurrence of a cell address in some cells' formulas? Or change a part of the printheader of 6 sheets? Now there is Flexfind, which enables Search and Replace in all these items and more!!!

Recent Changes

5.3 Build 596:

Improved search in chart titles and points, improved grouping of non-adjacent found sets of cells.

Mac version

Alas, this version will not work on a mac. For Mac users, Flexfind 5.1 (Downloaded: 7.659 times) is still available.

Instructions: Download the zip file by clicking the link above that says "". Unpack the files in the zip file to a folder of your liking and open the file called "Setup Flexfind.xls". Press the button in that file to install.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for letting me know. It does not for me and my anti-virus does not find it problematic either (ESET SMart Security latest version).

Why can't I see this project in `VBA`? "Project is unviewable" !


Comment by: Jan Karel Pieterse (24-6-2019 09:42:00)

Hi Alik,

Because the project has been protected using Unviewable+ :

to protect my IP.

Hi Alik,

If I may ask: Why do you want to unlock the VBA project?

I have 2 Add-ins (1 is yours `Flexfind` and 1 is my). They are used for `TabHome`. Right now I use 2 books How can i drag-AND-drop your VBAProject to my WorkBook.XLAM Having all the add-ins in one WorkBook will be convenient for me!

»»» I hope you understand.

Hi Alik,

You mean you would prefer to have the flexfind button to appear in your own custom group on the Home tab, rather than in its own Flexfind group? I'm afraid that would require modification of the RibbonX code of Flexfind and the code behind and adding callbacks to find out if FF needs to display its group or not. I'm afraid I have no plans on making such a custom version available, I'm sorry.
