Default Dreamweaver Techniques

I am a veterinarian who tinkers with my website using Dreamweaver. I would like to make identical changes in the copy on 187 webpages. I believe there is a Dreamweaver function that allows this, but I can not seem to find it in the help topics.
Would anyone be so kind as to give me the step-by-step method to do this?

Just use search & replace.

Open one of the pages in DW, highlight the current bit you wish to change in the code window. Hit Ctrl+F and the highlighted problem section should show in the Find box. Enter the new code/text in the Replace box. Select "Entire current site" and hit "Replace all". OK the warning and away you go.

Back up your site before doing this - just in case, as this is a powerful tool.

Dear Kelvyn,
I really appreciate your response. I know I'll never understand most of Dreamweaver but I do like working in it.
Best wishes,
Ron Hines

Make a backup of your site before changing that many pages. Think about the various ways to include repeated headers or footers or like information, so you don't change 187 pages at one time.
