• Find and replace text

phrase with another — for example, you can

case check box. For example, if you search for
AKA and replace it with Also known as, the
result is ALSO KNOWN AS.
cont
• If the Match case check box is selected, Office
Word 2007 searches only for words that
match the case of the word or phrase that you
typed in the Find what box.

box on the Replace tab, click More.
