Default Edit a paragraph with a section break

Hi there!
I need a find/replace vba code to do that:
Paragraph before:
any text-Section Break Mark-
Paragraph After:
any text*


*-Section Break Mark-
Where * = paragraph mark
The code should not replace when the paragraph contains only the section break mark.
I will appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks all! This workaround works well for my need:

Code:
Dim x as long, oDoc as document, sTmp as string

Set oDoc = activedocument

For x = 1 To oDoc.Paragraphs.Count
    sTmp = oDoc.Paragraphs(x).range.Text
    If InStr(sTmp, Chr(12)) > 0 And Len(sTmp) > 2 Then
        oDoc.Paragraphs(x).range.Select
        With Selection
            .Collapse direction:=wdCollapseEnd
            .MoveLeft unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
            .TypeText Chr(13) & Chr(13)
        End With
    End If
Next x

How do I identify a section break instead of a page break as word identify all as chr(12)?

Breaks types:

wdPageBreak
wdColumnBreak
wdSectionBreakNextPage
wdSectionBreakContinuous
wdSectionBreakEvenPage
wdSectionBreakOddPage
wdLineBreak
wdLineBreakClearLeft
wdLineBreakClearRight
wdTextWrappingBreak

How can I identify if there's a specific break in a selection? (e.g. wdSectionBreakNextPage)

Well for starters, if I wanted to know if there was a section break in my selection and if so, what type it was, I might try something like this.
Code:
Sub WhatIsIt()
  Dim aRng As Range
  If Selection.Sections.Count > 1 Then
    MsgBox "Section Break Type: " & Selection.Sections.Last.PageSetup.SectionStart
  Else
    MsgBox "You don't have a section break there"
  End If
End Sub
When it comes to the other break types, I'm seeing ascii values of 11 and 14 for column and line breaks.

Thanks! This works to identify the presence of a certain break type.
