    Search item was not found... (Word 2002)

    We have a user that is trying to use the Edit - Find (CTRL+F) feature in Word. There is nothing "special" checked in the Find dialog box (even under the "More" options), yet even when the word he is looking for is clearly in the document several times, Word continues to say "Word has finished searching the document. The search item was not found." Any ideas or known fixes?

    Any chance that some kind of formatting was specified in the Find what space? Usually it is indicated just below the blank area (e.g., Bold, Not Hidden, etc.).

    Does it work if the paragraph containing the word is selected?

    Does the document contain any frames or textboxes?
