    Find and Replace first instance of word Only

    I want to search for the word Total Points-Check. It has to search column A only. The word will appear numerous times by itself in a cell but I only want the first instance of it to be replaced with the word GUN. Possible??

    Try this...

    In a column next to it, use this, copied down...
    =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"text-to-remove","text-to-replace",1)

    If you want, you can then copy/paste values to remove the formulas
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
