MultiMacro, MegaReplace, and other products by Jack Lyon are wonderful.

I use MultiMacro, which will open multiple files and execute macros you
create on all of them without your lifting a finger.

You can download trial versions and see which product you prefer.

Jack's stuff is used by editors worldwide and is highly reliable and
inexpensive.
