be more specific.

do you need to replace a string?
do you need only to find if it is present?
do you need to return the string?

you can't find it in a file, you have to read the file and then do an instr() on each line

Alternatively, if you just want to check if the string is in the file, used the DOS "FIND" command.

For example:
code:
FIND /I "string" myfile.txt

Will search myfile.txt for "string".

The exit code will be "0" if the string is present, and "1" if it is not.

In KiXtart you can "Shell" the command and check @ERROR or %ERRORLEVEL%
