I have no idea what the upper limit is on the number of files one can edit with Dreamweaver in a single pass but I've just edited 25,149 files, making four edits in each, in less than ten minutes. Now THAT'S powerful.....

Wow, that is impressive..
Isn't the largest factor how much your computer can handle?
(I'm sure mine could not handle that )

Actually, no. I only had one file open to make the changes; I specified that the changes were to be made in all the files in a particular folder. It just so happened that the file I edited was in that folder, but that doesn't have to be the case, either.

Incidentally, there were 101 subfolders and 249 files to be edited in each subfolder. I specified that the changes were to be made throughout the folder, which, of course, covered the subfolders. As I said, worked like a charm.
