Why does the button in the dialog box read Find Next rather than simply Find?
In some cases, after locating a record that satisfi es a criterion, you might need to fi nd the
next record that satisfi es the same criterion. For example, if you just found the fi rst client
whose recruiter number is 24, you then may want to fi nd the second such client, then the
third, and so on. To do so, click the Find Next button. You will not need to retype the value
each time.
Can I replace one value with another using this dialog box?
Yes. Either click the Replace button on the Ribbon or the Replace tab in the Find and Replace
dialog box. You then can enter both the value to fi nd and the replacement value.
