I am just learning to use GA and messed up my first try. It is
question ID: 221351. I wanted to designate you as the responder with
the most helpful answer, but I closed the thread and then could not do
anything with it. Can you post your answer, and collect the fee, which
I now also realize should have been more, considering the kindness,
patience and thoroughness of the research staff.

Thanks, that's very kind, very generous of you.  One of the things I
really enjoy about Google Answers is the collegiality.  It's sometimes
competitive, but always in the friendliest way, and there is so much
sharing going on. It's a great concept.

As for the Microsoft Word problem, here's what I wrote:

I think you'll find Find and Replace (Edit >> Replace) nearer what you
are looking for.
If you are manipulating a text document it's no problem (I frequently
do this when re-formating forwarded forwarded emails with those
irritating >> markers.
You will find a number of advanced options if you click on Special. 
What you may not be able to do is to do your editting just in one
selected block of text - although you can choose to go UP from the
cursor point, or DOWN from the cursor point, or to select ALL of the
document.  You can get by this by cutting the selected text, pasting
it into a new document, replacing as you want in that text , then
cutting and pasting it back into the original document.  Always a good
idea to Save your work before making any changes, and also getting to
learn and love the [Control+Z] (=undo) feature.
If this answers your needs, I'll be happy to post this as an answer. 
Best, r2l
