It's OK thanks. With Martin's help, I've done the job.

It turned out that search and replace, replace all, replaces not just all 
occurrences in the file on top, but all of them. It did need tidying in a 
couple of places where it wasn't correct, but all done.

Searching the first 1K wouldn't have worked - mostly the string to replace 
was in the error handler, and that's usually at the end of my software.
