    search more than one words simultaneously (Word 2003)

    I want to check a text report. A list of words is not allowed to use in test.
    I do not want to search all words one by one (Control F function for more than one words simultaneously).
    I want I apply a simultaneous search for all words so that search would highlight/pick all these words in a single step.
    Is it possible?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Word doesn't let you search for several words or phrases at once, you'd have to write a macro to do that.

    How about creating an exlude dictionary using the list of not-allowed words?
    Then the spelling checker will highlight them
