    macro to put para return between scans (office 2003, SP 2)

    We insert tifs or jpgs of forms into our documents --usually forms from Excel for our Cost volumes. Now we've found we can insert 50 or more at the same time (we were inserting one at a time with each having an associated para return). But bringing them all in at the same time means each doesn't have its own para return. They appear one to a page because they're large, but there's nothing to separate them. If one needs replaced, you first have to make sure it has a para return associated with it; otherwise the next one snaps right into its place.

    I recorded a macro that moves to the right one unit and types a para return (repeated the action 15 times). Is there a way to do this in one action if I have 50-100 tifs selected? Thanks so much.

    Try a search and replace to do this without any macros
    Find: ^g
    Replace: ^&^p
