Find/Replace woes

Herschel,
This works fine if the only word in the "edtText" field matches the 
"edtReplace" field.
But if there are ANY other words at all in "edtText", nothing gets 
replaced.
So how can Replace be made to actually replace all instances?
Should this be Replace Text rather than Replace field?
Thanks,
Adrian
