Default Wildcard search help.

Hi, I'm looking for some help.

I'm unsure if this is possible but I have a large document that needs some work doing to it. Due to the document having been converted from another format, there are a lot of paragraph breaks mid sentence which I have tried to rectify using Word's find and replace. First I have converted the paragraph's to manual page breaks then, using wildcards, I am currently trying to fix the breaks going on the assumption that the break would be followed by a lower case letter as opposed to an upper case with a normal paragraph break, I am doing this so the wildcard search will differentiate between the two. The wildcard seach I am using is:-



^l[a-z]

Now this finds every one of the unwanted breaks fine but how can I make sure the first character of the discovered wildcard word is replaced correctly after the space? Currently the first letter of the first word is being cut, obviously due to this being part of the wildcard search.

Thanks in advance, I'm no expert in this and hope someone might be able to help.
