    I have a HUGE word document that was written in notepad.

    The person took a book and wrote it in notepad and just put page numbers and kept typing.

    So now i have a 200 page book that's got '[Pg #]' all crammed together. Is there a way to find and replace this?

    I've looked everywhere and can't find anything. Not even wildcards work from what i understand.

    Anyone have an idea on how to fix this? I just want to mass take out all the '[Pg #]' within the document.



    EDIT: I got it! just use this code ^# and it finds any string of numbers. So in my case i would us [Pg ^#] and it found all instances.

    Actually the code i put in only finds single digits. No idea on how to do 10 on up to 200.

    Any ideas anyone?

    I had an idea but it won't help you that much.

    Use the replace option and replace '[Pg' with ' '. and the same for ']'. After that you will have only problems with the #.

    If you have a book without numbers you can simply replace '1' with ' ', '2' with ' ' and so on...

    Or you can do it manually. 200 pages x 3 secs per edit = 600 sec.

    In 10 minutes you are finished.

    If my reply helped don't forget to hit the THANKS button. :smashfrea

    [[]*[0-9][]]

    Use the above wildcard to find all instances of [Pg #] / [Pg ##] / [Pg ###]. Meaning, any number of digits within "[" & "]". Now, for the replacement? What do you need this to be replaced with?

    Let me know, i shall try to help!

    Tnx
