Searching/replacing "select" columns within MySQLi server behaviors

Searching/replacing "select" columns within MySQLi server behaviors

I have a membership database that I inherited, and had to teach myself MySQL to get the database online/dynamic for my client. A preexisting column heading was titled "foreign" to indicate foreign members. Not realizing that "foreign" was a protected field within MySQL coding, I built a ton of server behaviors that GET or POST to my tables data that include this foreign field. Now of course, the posting in this particular field is not working (everything else is) and I realize I need to rename that column (to maybe "overseas"), as well as the "select" field in all my server behaviors.

Is there a quick and dirty search-and-replace operation I can do to accomplish this in code view? Or do I have to go into these server behaviors one by one and make the changes? I'm nervous about this because the panels are half-broken, the database connections are not showing, I'm seeing "***No Table Found", etc. I'm afraid to break the whole thing.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

A site-wide find and replace should work... it just would also replace the plain text version of the word if it appears on your site as well.

Thank you Ray, the find-and-replace did indeed work! I did a test on one server behavior first, and when that was OK, I replaced the whole shootin' match. Much obliged!

On a related question, because "No table found" was showing up in my Bindings panel, I thought I should do this in DW v. 6. But when I opened the same php files there, all server behaviors had disappeared! It was as if I had never written them - even though that's in fact where they were created. Any ideas as to why?

Maybe the same extensions aren't installed or different versions so the server behavior code isn't recognized.
