Joe:

There is another program that you, and all other interested parties, should
check out and that is "UltraFind". It is a program that cost $39.95US. But,
IMHO, it is worth every penny.

UltraFind is a program that will search for any string in every readable
document/folder/drive you select. Note Sherlock searches for a text string
in the document/folder/drive name -- but not in the document itself.

For example, if you want to checkout all occurrences of PICOMMENT in all FB
code on your drive -- you can do that. The program will show you a listing
of all documents -- with an example of the text where the search string
appeared. For example, if I search this document for PICOMMENT, it would
list PICOMMENT as follows:

     if you want to checkout all occurrences of PICOMMENT in all FB code
     on your drive -- you can do that. The program...

From there, you can click on the line and that document will be opened so
you can look further into it.

It is a really neat program for finding "Where was that code?" or "Do I
have some snipit somewhere that uses this toolbox call?". Plus is it FAST!!!
