Okay, I've never used this site, so sorry if i mess up somehow. I just have a question about how to make a macro.

I have a huge list of spanish vocabulary i need to edit but i have no idea how to do it. I have been trying for like 3 days now but nothing :/

Anyway, here is what my list looks like:
correr (v): to run
lampara (nf): lamp
libro (nm): book

I need it to look like this:
correr (v): to run
la lampara: lamp
el libro: book

I have tried everything I can think of only using the Find and Replace tools and I haven't even made a dint in the total vocabulary list. So a macro is the way to go, just I can't do it haha. Could someone help me??? If so, that makes you god and THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!:bow:

Nevermind! I found a way to do it thanks to someone on Yahoo Answers! (Thanks Blackened)

To replace (nm) with el:
1.Open the replace dialog.
2. if the 'use wildcards' checkbox isn't visible, click more
3. check 'use wildcards'
4. in the 'find what' box enter: (<[A-Za-z]@) \((<nm>)\)
5. in the 'replace with' box enter: el \1
6. find and replace as you normally would.

Likewise, to replace (nf) with la:
in the find what box enter: (<[A-Za-z]@) \((<nf>)\)
and in the replace with box enter: la \1
