Help needed with Search and Replace

  • I do not want the document number in my XML File.
    I tried search and replace but don’t know how to use it in the right way.

    What do i need to SEARCH for if i want all the <Document number="[0-9}"> tags need to be replaced with the tag: <Document> ? Or is there an other way to delete these numbers.

    Below an example of the XML file with 2 documents


  • @Sandra-Treffers, All

    You were close. One way to solve it is the following regex:

    Search: (<Document) number="[\d]+">
    Replace: $1>

    Put the caret at the very beginning of the document, select the Regular Expression mode and click on Replace or Replace All.

    Hope this helps.
