Hi,

i have recorded a macro to do a find and replace on many sheets in many workbooks.
However it doesn't work. The find and replace works fine manually but not in the macro.l No error message shows up. It just doesn't happen? anyone know why?

I am using XL2k.

Thanks

Windows(Sheet1.Cells(i, 2).Value).Activate
' On Error GoTo error1:
Sheets("Urban Motorway").Select
Cells.Replace What:="1.37412", Replacement:="1.162", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False

This is the bit that doesn't seem to work?
