    Word2000 Srch&Replace (Word2000 SR1 Win NT 4.0 (patch 6))

    We use the Marlett bullet (character 103 in Word2000 - I'm sure had a different number in Word97). We did have the capability of being able to do a search & replace in Word97, now lost in Word2000. I don't want to start writing code. Can I just type the character code in find and replace with clipboards contents?
    I've located a couple of character maps but would like to find one that includes all symbol sets - i.e. Marlett bullets. Any help or advice?

    Thanks for the info. Will get the MS article. Didn't find a macros9.dot but found macros8.dot. Maybe it wasn't part of the install.

    Hi Patricia,

    Word 2000 uses Unicode. Characters from old "decorative" fonts (like Symbol-, Wingdings-fonts ...) are banned to a special code page (reserved for "private use") starting at U+F000 (61440).
    Since 61440+103=61543 you can find the character searching for ^u61543.

    Thanks, Klaus. I tried that but it did not work - msg was "^u" is invalid code. So I tried searching for 61543 and that didn't work either. What am I doing wrong?

    Macros8.dot came with W97 - the W2k version should be macros9.dot. Speak to whoever installed your software to find out what happened to it - or try searching 'my computer' to see if it's anywhere you aren't aware of?

    Try the Find Symbol macro in macros9.dot. To get more infor on this go to:

    For me ^u is valid normally, but not in a wildcard search. Are you doing a wildcard search?

    That was my first idea, too. And ^u has to be two characters (not the u with ^-accent).

    Another method is to type Alt-61543 (hold down the Alt-key, then type the numbers on the numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard. For this to work, NumLock must be active (if there is a lamp "Num", it should be on).
