    Selecting by font size (2002)

    I have an rtf file that I've outputted from Access. If I try to select all headers in the Styles and Formatting, I don't get them all because Word is selecting by style and Access or Word has not formatted the styles consistently.

    If I let Word autoformat, I get all of the headers, but Word messes up some of my other text.

    What I want to do is select all text that is a certain font size. Does anybody know how to do this?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    To be able to select all text meeting specific criteria, you must have turned on "Keep track of formatting" in the Edit tab of Tools | Options...

    Select Edit | Find...
    Make sure that the "Find what" box is empty.
    Click the "More" button.
    Click "No formatting".
    Select the "Format" button, then select Font.
    Select the font size you want to look for, but take care not to specify other font characteristics such as bold, color etc.
    Click OK.
    Tick the check box "Highlight all instances found in" (the dropdown below it should read "Main document").
    Click the "Find all" button.

    I turned on "Keep track of formatting", but the "No formatting" button is still inactive.

    Don't worry about that - it means that no formatting has been specified. Simply continue with the rest of the steps.
