[bksvol-discuss] Re: a listing of format characters

Cheryl,

You're welcome.

Yes, that's what the help info in Word was talking about.  The info related
to wildcards was included because some codes like ^p don't work when
wildcards are turned on.  An alternative like ^13 has to be used instead.

HTH

Gerald

Thanks, Gerald, for the list. I'm assuming by wild cards, 
you mean the checkbox accessable by hitting the more 
button in find and replace tab.
