Find and Replace all in a PDF File.

Hi Experts,

Is there a way to Find and Replace a particular Text / Phrase in an unprotected PDF Document while keeping everything else intact and save the file in PDF? Also is it possible to perform Wild Card Character like search in any such document?

I have a 33 page pdf which has 2500 instances of the word "XYZ". I want to replace all XYZ with ABC. How can I do that?
