I need to a url in front of 10k names. I can’t figure it out.
Since you provided no context about the problem at all I doubt anyone else will be able to figure it out either. ;)
If the existing text is one per line in your file, and it is the first or only thing on the line, it is fairly easy:
Do a search in regular expression mode for ^
And replace with your desired text
If your data is not this simple, then you really need to provide more before someone can give you decent help.
I guess I’m not explaining this well. I apologizes.
Lets say I have 10 thousand names and I want to add http://google.com/ in front of every one of them.
So that’s very straightforward according to my previous post. Invoke the Find Dialog box (Search menu, choose Find…). With your editing cursor at the top of your file, activate the Replace tab in the Find dialog box. In the Find What Field, use the single character ^ (which means roughly search for beginning of line). In the Replace with Field, use http://google.com/. Make sure the Search Mode option is set for Regular Expression and that the Direction choice is Down. Press the Replace All button.
