Subject pretty much asks it all - wondering if FLP / FLL could scan files in a folder and report which ones have a specific text string in one of the code modules. Note that there four classes of code modules in Office apps - 'native' ones (ThisWorkbook), standard code modules, class modules and form modules.

FileLocator Pro (FLP) can search the raw binary data in those file types. Switch off the 'Office/PDF Documents' option in the Options tab OR switch to 'Deep Search' in the Document Settings. Both will force FLP to search the binary data of the file types.
