Dear all,

I received around 100 different do-files from a colleague, but the
path name in each do-file is different from my computer because the
do-files were on a different computer. Is there any easy way to change
the path in each do-file without having to physically open each
do-file and replace the path name?

This is a case for a search and destroy text editor. Any of the better text editors are capable of carrying out find and replace operations over all the files in a folder, or set of folders (such a command is called search and destroy, since the capability for utter chaos is huge).

See the text editor FAQ at
