I have a Project Web Access site collection that contains at least 100 pages (out of several thousand) where Page Viewer web parts are targeted to a URL that is no longer valid. The URLs have changed from a pattern like to http://randomsite/whatever (don't ask why we don't deal with this by DNS).

I could change the URLs manually if needed but the larger problem is that the target URL for a page viewer is apparently not indexed for search. Any clever ideas for finding these instances?

Not sure if it would work in your case, but one way to access and modify Web Part information is to use SharePoint Web Services. Take a look at the following methods: GetWebPartPage, GetWebPart2, SaveWebPart2.

Here is the link for Office 12:
