I'm using Microsoft Office 2007. How can I search inside multiple Excel files?
Use IceTeaReplacer. It's freeware.
There is also a more powerful alternative with various features but it's a commercial one: ExcelPipe.
With the folder that houses the files open, press Ctrl+f to use the search box in the folder. Then search for
to search for that string in the files in the current directory.
In Excel 2003 you had an extra search option in the file menu where you were able to search through files. I can't find this option in 2007 anymore so I think it's gone.
If your have Vista or Windows 7 you should be able to use window's integrated search. In older versions you could install a search app like Windows Desktop Search, Google Desktop Search, Copernic, ... they're all free to use.
