Overview
Use this simple add-on for advanced search in your google spreadsheet. Find and replace text within a formula, check links hidden behind the display text, search within notes, and look for values at the same time. You can search and replace within a column by simply selecting the necessary range of data, or choose to scan any selected sheets. The add-on will display the list of all found records organized by sheet and take you to any found cell in a click. 
It's easy to use and it offers all you need to discover the necessary data:
	- Look at values, formulas, notes, errors and links simultaneously 
	- Find and replace in a single column or search everywhere in the spreadsheet 
	- Get all matches listed in the sidebar, navigate to any entry in a click  
	- Replace all or only the selected records
	- Export the found values or the entire rows that contain them

the app works great, the ridiculous amount of ratings requests is a total pain in the a**. I have better things to do than this.

Hello there, When the add-on asks you to rate it, you can click the No, thanks button and you won't see the message again. If you click Later, the message will appear again.

This feature was great before it became something you had to pay for. Ever since I signed up and paid for the subscription it's nowhere near as accurate as it was before it became something you pay for. I can search for something that I can literally see in a cell on the screen and the add-on doesn't find it. They need to make improvements before I renew next year.

This has been indispensable while doing a silly personal project that involved converting a lot of numbers to point totals. It has been very easy to use while easing my mind as as much as i enjoy trying to compute things in my head, this completely removed personal error.

I have always liked the time saving aspect of the add on but in the last year it has been hit or miss for accuracy. Seems as though once it was updated and it became a paid subscription, it started flaking out. I am not pleased with the accuracy for the price tag that has been assigned. I keyed in the exact info 30 times back to back and it would give me different responses each time. I searched my name on one sheet and 19 out of 30 times it popped up with No Matching Data Found. Not $30.00 odds when you have to manually do the job that often. I often times get error messages, it times out or locks up. I would love to see more accuracy and less glitchy for the price tag that it currently holds

Thank you very much for your feedback, Sandy. I'm really sorry to hear you've encountered this difficulty. We would appreciate a lot if you could contact our support team (support@ablebits.com) with the example of your data and the screenshot of the settings you select in the add-on. If you see any error messages again, please send us their screenshots as well. We'll investigate the issue and see what may be causing the problem. Since we've never been reported of this before, for now I can only advise you to make sure you're not logged in to multiple accounts (the issue on the side of Google) and your Internet connection speed is fast and stable. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I love it because at this time it is serving my purpose. I will warn you that it is case sensitive. If you are doing a name search, you must search for the name as you entered it. If you use caps for the first or last name. you must do so in the search.

Thank you very much for your feedback, Lawana! The add-on is actually case sensitive if you make it so :) There's an option "Match case" right below the field for entering names. If you UNcheck the box for that option, the add-on will find the records no matter their case.

Not worth a subscription. I'll spend the hour it takes to make my own add-on for searching within formulas, thanks..

Absolute horseshit. This add-on would have been good, in fact it was. But they started forcing people to pay 30$ a year for it, which is absolutely insane. I would not recommend it at all.

the only reason it gets any stars is because it works. If it wasn't for getting a stupid popup EVERY TIME i search for something that i have to go close, i would give it 5 stars. i could tolerate the once every 10 searches or so, but every time is just ridiculous. this has spawned a new effort to search for a new way to perform my task so i can remove this.
