Many thanks.

With the Wildcards Option checked, on pressing Replace All, I get: "^# is not a valid special character for the Find What box or is not supported when the Use Wildcards check box is selected".

When I uncheck the Use Wildcards check box and press Replace All, I get: "All done. We made 0 replacements".

If I press Find Next in either case, I get: No results found.

I haven't tried your second suggestion yet
