This week we bring you a quick video on how to use the Search and Replace tool in FIN Stack. The most common scenario for this tool is to mass rename or edit point names across the FIN Stack database.
For example, say you brought in your points and you realized that they all have a common extra text (equip name, phrase, underscores, dashes) that could be removed to clean things up. Well this tool allows you to do just that!
How It works:
Once your looking at the right records, you can then select what its going to "search" for, and in the final parameter, you can select what its going to "replace" that with. So if you want to remove all underscores from your points, you can type "_" into the Search section, and leave an empty space in the replace section. As soon as you hit apply, it will look at all the targeted records, find the underscores and replace them with the empty space. (Ex. "Supply_Fan_Speed_Cmd" > "Supply Fan Speed Cmd")
