But don't forget this method copies and replaces the formatting too, unless

Have you tried Find/Replace, as:
* Create the new variable.
* Insert one instance of it.
* Copy to clipboard.
* Find an instance of the old variable.
* Replace by pasting.
If this works, open all files in the book, save all files in the
book, then Find/Replace across the book. Check representative
replacements across the book before saving all files.
