This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I don't have Word 2007, but in 2003 if you click the 'More' on the Find and Replace dialog, then click 'Use Wildcards', you can enter

\(*\)

into the "Find what" box and leave the "Replace with" box blank. Clicking Replace All will then remove words enclosed by parentheses.
