    Can I search across several documents at one time?

    Is it possible to look (search) for a name across several documents at one time?

    Yes, in the File Open dialog box, click the Advanced button. Then in the ensuing dialog box, set as your criteria: Contents include words [name you're trying to find]. Also, at the bottom of the dialog, pick the folder to search in.

    Hi Daniel:

    While I see that Stephen has given you the tip for searching within Word itself, I recommend a utility that I've used that is far more flexible & faster. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=free&Number=20401&page=&vie w=&sb=&vc=1>this</A> post.
