    Highlighting (Word 2003)

    Hello all, is there a way to automatically select and highlight every occurrence of the word "investigate" in my document? I know this can be done in Internet Explorer with the Google Toolbar.

    Sincerely,

    JMT

    To select all occurrences of "investigate"
    - Select Edit | Find... or press Ctrl+F.
    - Enter the wordinvestigate in the 'Find what' box.
    - You may want to click More and tick the check box to find whole words only/
    - Tick the check box "Mark All". The "Find Next" button will change to "Find All".

    And if you meant permanent highlighting (as if you used a marker pen):
    - First, select the highlight color you want to use - click the little dropdown arrow on the right hand side of the Highlight button on the Formatting toolbar.
    - Then, select Edit | Replace or press Ctrl+H.
    - Enter investigate in the 'Find what' box.
    - Enter ^& in the 'Replace with' box (this means that you'll replace with whatever is in the 'Find what box).
    - Click More.
    - If desired, tick the check box to find whole words only.
    - With the insertion point in the 'Replace with' box, click Format.
    - Select Highlight from the dropdown menu.
    - Click 'Replace All'.
