Problem:
Loads of descriptions came in trimmed at 64 chars. At the end of most items, there is the line "This includes free delivery".
But most times, it's been chopped. So it might be
This includes free delivery
This includes fre
Thi
etc. So I don't know the left or right chars to trim to neaten this up.
So I thought wildcard or regex find and replace would do, but it doesn't seem to want to work like that with me! I've tried searching for phrases like "partial find and replace" on this forum, but to no avail. I've got 4500 lines to do, so I'd rather not do it by hand Smile Thanks.
