I used the following to create it in the first place, but I don't know how to create the commands from the list and then run the newly created commands on the document under consideration.

      Sheri and I think alike.
      If you want to work with computers one must think like a computer!

      Anyway, creating the replacements from a list is trivial (it doesn't even need RegEx!):

      ^!Set %str1%=test string (lower case)
      ^!Set %str2%=^$StrCapitalize("^%str1%")$
      ^!Replace "^%Str1%" >> "^%Str2%" AIW

      Put this in a loop and replace "test string (lower case)" with ^%array^%i%% where %array% is defined by ^!SetArray %array%=^$GetFileText(FileName)$ and you have preset delimiter to CRLF.
