I'm using the Find and Replace feature in a large word document I have. I need to find the word REMARKS: (all bold and upppercase).

REMARKS: THIS IS SOME IMPORTANT DATA

At then end of that line or after a line break is a TABLE if that can help in the reqex.

Using find / replace with use Wildcards Checked and this expression:

<(REMARKS:*[A-Z])

I've found the word and the first Char after the space:

REMARKS: T

What can I add to make it stop at the end of the line? There is always a table the proceeds this "REMARK:" text

For example in javascript: /.REMARKS:\s([A-Z,0-9]).+/g will find it, but is not acceptable in Word's find and replace....

I've also found that using:

<(REMARKS:[A-Z]^l) or <(REMARKS:[A-Z]^13) will get me closer.

Match string AFTER known word to End of Line

Use the following regular expression:

<(REMARKS:[0-9A-Z ]@[^13^|])

Notes:

  • < matches "The beginning of a word"

  • [0-9A-Z ] matches any number, uppercase letter, or space

  • @ matches "One or more occurrences of the previous character or expression"

  • [^13^|] matches a paragraph marker or a manual line break.
