Peter: Sample file "August" with one search/replace malfunction. I did a search for [fr;p~".] and replaced with [lea], both codes typed in manually, and all options unchecked. Search for August9, and the malfunction is about 10 lines down the page. You may call me at (616)957-4943 I am going to go back to the original file and do the same search again and check the results. I'll let you know. ________________________________________________________________________ Try Juno Platinum for Free! Then, only $9.95/month! Unlimited Internet Access with 1GB of Email Storage.
