# add text in multiple files

• Hi,
I need to insert a text, in multiple files.

The text is always the same, and the position where I want to insert it is also the same in each file.

The text is:

``````<gmd:descriptiveKeywords>
<gmd:MD_Keywords>
<gmd:keyword>
<gco:CharacterString>open data</gco:CharacterString>
</gmd:keyword>
</gmd:MD_Keywords>
</gmd:descriptiveKeywords>
``````

and I want to put it after the line with this text:

``````</gmd:resourceMaintenance>
``````

I think I should use the find and replace with regex, but I don’t know how.

Stefano

Regular expressions (regex) is the way to go:

Search for: `</gmd:resourceMaintenance>(\R)`

and Replace with: `\${0}<gmd:descriptiveKeywords>\${1} <gmd:MD_Keywords>\${1} <gmd:keyword>\${1} <gco:CharacterString>open data</gco:CharacterString>\${1} </gmd:keyword>\${1} </gmd:MD_Keywords>\${1}</gmd:descriptiveKeywords>\${1}`

• thank you,

exactly what I needed.
works great.
