Questions are about "Find" and "Replace" features under "Edit" on tool bar. I can "Find" a $ amount (ie: $3.50) in cells ONLY if I change "Look In" from "Formulas" to "Values." BUT, I when I click on "Replace" and the next screen comes up, the "Look In" drop down menu disappears and if I try to "Replace All" my $3.50 with $3.00 (for example) it says "Microsoft Excel cannot find matching data to replace." So, how do I "Replace All" for large quantity of $ amounts? Also, I used to be able to "Find All," NOT Just "Find" or "Find Next." How do you now "Find All" in current Excel version? I used to be able to do both in my older versions of Excel.

Hi, I am having trouble using find and replace in my worksheet. I am trying to find and replace a string of text that is part of a larger portion of text in the cells of one column of the worksheet. The problem is that the find and replace function is replacing the entire cell contents, not the string of text specified in find and replace.
