I would install the find and replace macro, but started I have a difficulty:
Quote: 1. Tools > Macros > Macro... > Organizer > Libraries
Which one do I choose from > Macro... >: I have three, a/ Record macro b/ Run macro c/ Organize macros ??
For b/ I need a JRE. Where can I find this? And install it?

Quote: 2. Ensure that sOffice is selected for Application/Document
What do they mean by sOffice?
How do I know that sOffice is selected in that way? And how to setup it?

I need this macro (I think) to delete TABs (only) in a text file.
Is that possible with this macro? i.e. Find <Tab> Replace (nothing)

Regards, perloc

You can replace tabs without using any special macros.

See the list of regular expressions in help

Search \t to find all tabs

http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010400.xml
Download java from here, you will find istallation instructions there as well with pictures
As for the rest: just try to be brave enough and proceed in all three ways. Only one will let you go further towards installing the macro. Along that way you will recognize soffice as well.
Just decide this beforehand: what are you going to do?
Aro you going to RECORD a macro by yourself?
Are you going to RUN a macro you already have?
Are you going to ORGANIZE your macros?
Which are the ones you can rule out right away?
Go for the remainder.

Try this:
Tools>Macros.Orangize Macros>Organizer>OpenOffice Basic>Organizer>Libraries>Append > find the Find and replace document and select the macro.

[quoteOnce you have it you can run it from the Run Macro command or you can also assign a key stroke, stick it in a menu (maybe under Edit?) or assign a macro to it. I think Ian has included some instructions about this in his document but I also think that the instructions are a bit out of date.

http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp (I think)

It is quite likely that you already have Java loaded.

This seems to be another name for OOo : perhaps a leftover from its days as Staroffice.

Beats me, I

I believe Bikkru has answered that. You don't actually need FindandReplace for this
Just enter \t in the find , select regular expressions from the More Options list and that should do it.

Iannz's macro is very handy for a lot of FindandReplace work so it is probably worth loading.

If you select Soffice in Application/Document the macro can be used in all OOo-modules (so it can be used in Writer, but also in Calc and Impress) if it suits that module.

If you don't select Soffice you're macro will only run in the current document or module.

Note: Install instructions refer to version 1.1 not 2.0 which slightly differs.

Bikkru wrote that it can be done in the standard F/R of OO.
I've tried a lot of things but I did not found out how it can be done.
Only put a <TAB> in the find window don't work, even not with the, Quote: "See the list of regular expressions in help"
Do I skip something?

I will try the other suggestions and I'll back if it don't work out.
Thanks for the help so far.

\t in the search box
nothing in the replace box (or a space if you want)
Check regular expressions. In OOo2 to do so you must click More first.

I've found out why this: "Just enter \t in the find , select regular expressions from the More Options list and that should do it." won't work in my case.
In "More options" - "Atrributes" the TABS was selected. As this is selected the above " \t "won't work. Take away the selection, and is works!
Thanks for all your help!
Merry Xmas!
