Hi,
I found it will be useful have possibility to find AND replace text on server - of course with review before make changes. What I see this:
1. Search text on server - as is.
2. Review findings and checkbox witch should be replaced
3. Click and done :-)

It`s useful when I migrate system from develop machine to production when some configuration setting are store in database.

Don't you think that should be done manually with queries? It's quite risky to rely on some automatism in such cases, as it is when you search+replace within some coded file.

That`s why I suggest step 2 with review potentially search/replace pair. Of course this process is on users risk - but in some cases (as I wrote) it should be useful.

And how should that GUI look like exactly? Which text should be used as checbox labels in case you find something within BLOBs? Should checkboxes be grouped in a tree structure by their table name? Where to display a myriad of checkboxes in that limited space at the top of that small table tools dialog? What do do if some table does not have a primary or unique key for an UPDATE clause? Etc. etc..
