You might want to check out the function _ReplaceStringInFile, if you want to replace every instance of the word pay with paid this should work for what you want to do.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Another way:

$sText = FileRead("report.txt)
$sNew = StringReplace($sText, "pay ", "PAID ")
$hFile = FileOpen("PaidReport.txt", 2)
FileWrite($hFile, $sNew)
FileClose($hFile)
