Office Tip of the Month - Find and Replace Excel Hack

This week I was asked how to replace abbreviations of street names in Excel without using a complex formula. For instance I have a huge dataset containing abbreviations such as rd for road and ave for avenue. I want to replace rd with Road.

As most of you may already know, Word also has the Find and Replace function, and with this feature, you can replace both the whole word and part of the word. However, with Excel you don't get this option. This means that if I tried to replace st with street, in Excel the finished result for a cell containing 10 Stuart Street would be 10 Streetuart Street! Here's what to do...

1. Copy the data from Excel and paste into a new Word document.

2. In Word document, select the data (press Ctrl A to select all), and then press Ctrl + H keys together to open the Find and Replace dialog box.

3. In the Find and Replace dialog box, enter the data that you want to find e.g St and then type the value that you want to replace with e.g Street.

4. Then click More >> button to expand the Find and Replace dialog box and tick Find whole words only option, and then click Replace All.

5. Copy and paste back to Excel.
