sed -e '1,$s/string1/string2/g' file1>>file2
If you don't escape the // in the strings you may want to
use | as a separator for the sed command....
sed -e '1,$s|string1|string2|g' file1>>file2

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
