    I searched the Word forum for text wrapping. The first page of the search didn't have one reference to my search term. Am I to believe that nobody before me has ever posted a message about word wrapping in Word?

    If so I find it incredible. Otherwise I am unique! {8;-))

    Did you use quotation marks around the search term - i.e. "text wrapping"? I just tried this and returned 4 pages of hits from the Word forum.

    In addition to what John said about the quotes, if you put a + in front of each word, the search engine will only return posts with both words. I just tried it and got 153 hits (6+ pages). See this for examples:

    No; but I have and am overwhelmed. It would be easier to ask a question!

    Thank you for your guidance

    Thank you for your reply. I am very grateful - it is evident why my search success is low!
