Quick question to anyone who uses word regulary. If I want to change multiple repetions of a word in a doc, eg 'and for &', is there a way I can block do it, rather than retype each one? I looked in Autocorrect but that only seems to do it as I type, not afterwards. Any help appreeciated.

I beleive find and replace is the tool you are looking for :)

Somewhere in word (Cant remember off the top of my head), is a feature called "Find and Replace" Which literally, finds a word and replaces it with your choice :)

Cheers TenderSurrender. That just accomplished in about 10th of a sec what would have taken half an hour to do! By the way, I see you are in Suffolk. I'm a Norfolk boy born and bred, though escaped to France now.
Take it easy.
