I am very new to solidworks (coming from Solid edge background) and unable to locate a tool which will help me to select all identical parts in assembly.

Please help me out (sure there must be something you people have here for me)

To simplify :

 

I have around 100 number of M10x25 bolts in a assembly in various locations for varoius functions.

By some means I need a replacement to it by M12 bolts.

I need to select all the 100 bolts but i can't (As i dont know how to select and the only method i know is to select all bolts in the assembly tree)

It will take me hours to select if there are 10-20 such cases .

 

Please help me out .
