Search & Replace Function

Post by stpharm »

I think one of the most important functions in a database is the Search & Replace Function

The Personal Finance App i have used for the past 20 years or so is Adarian Money (probably if anyone used PalmOS at some point will know it :D )
Honestly i have tried so many times to find a good alternative it both in simplicity and Functionality but NONE comes close to it.

As time passes i often come to a point that i need better reporting more or less extended , more or less detailed etc , and thus i many times i had to re-organize hundreds of past entries in a different way.

The only (easy and safe) way to do that is by using a Filter to create a Table of Entries, and then by an Implemented Function re-assign those to other fields (e.g Batch Reassign Categories , Custom Fields, Subcategories) or Even Search through Notes for Keywords and then Replace them

I know that it could be done through SQL , but only for advanced users ,
I would be gratefull if you could implement in MMEX , because it would bring me closer to completely migrate from Adarian to MMEX

Thanks
