Text1.Text = Replace$(Text1.Text, "old word", "new word")

To read from the text file, try this:
Open "yourtextfile" For Input As #1
Line Input #1, ReadStr
you will probably need to read each line into an array.

morsnowski would the text1.replace thing work? I didnt think it would case it would be readin off a textfile????
Try taking these examples and adding them to your code or start a new project so you can test them and see how they work. This is just about the only way to learn and understand VB.
