How to find replace + with 00 for International telephone in an imported database

Recommended Posts


I have imported various old address books and databases into Filemaker Pro 12 and spent hours formatting the 3600 records with up to 5 telephone numbers each to the format +44 xxxxxxx as an example - I now discover that Filemaker Go will need this to be 00 rather than +


I have tried and not succeeded with 'Find and replace' by entering "+" in the find box and 00 in the replace but it seems to crash and not achieve the result :upset:

I am not very familiar with boolean operators and I assume the + has to be within "" or it will not be seen as text or should I write \+


Any suggestions would be appreciated
