Hi, Bud. You can replace in K1000. Do a Control-H. From there, you can enter the text you want it to find, then tab over to the replace field and either enter text or leave it blank as the case may be. There are settings for matching whole word, matching case, etc. I hope this helps. Take care. -- Julie Morales Email & Windows/MSN Messenger: mercy421@xxxxxxxxxxx Skype: mercy0421 Please contact me if I may not recognize your contact info before adding me or I may not add you!

I'm waiting for a reply from Carie to see if her suggestion was for k1000. Thanks.
