    Re: Replace Smart Quote (Word 2000)

    What works on my system is this:
    1) turn off the "Replace quotes with smart quotes" item (Tools | Autocorrect | Correct as you type)

    2) now do a search and replace
    search string ^0147
    replace string ^0171

    this will replace the opening quotes with opening guillemets.

    Now do search and replace
    search string ^0148
    replace string ^0187

    The general code, you can search for any character using its ANSI code by typing ^NNNN where NNNN is the ANSI code (initial zero required for most ANSI values).

    The really odd thing is that when I left the "Replace straight quotes with smart quotes" option checked, the search and replace said it replaced items but nothing actually changed.
