Thanks for all the inputs, but this was the first one I tried this morning and 
it worked, so I didn't check the other solutions - but all the suggestions were 
much appreciated!

Ok I can't find it...

Where you're doing a search & replace, how do you keep from replacing the 
characters you're searching for:

I want this:

:1,$s/[0-9]/^M/  --- but this replaces whatever matches in 0-9 with a carriage 
return - I actually want it to not replace but insert a carriage return after 
finding the number string and keep the number.
