Question Create a macro or Find/Replace Code to delete tags

Hello and Help!
I am exporting an .xml file from Word Press to Word that brings tags along with it. They aren't really html tags they are event tags from my calendar plug-in. I can use Find/Replace but there are 26 tags to remove so I am trying to create a macro to do this for me and am having no luck.

Here's what an entry looks like. There must be an easy way to do a macro or find/replace to take out everything inside and including the <>?

Thanks in advance! I'm desperate.

A simple wildcard Find/Replace operation should do the job:
Find What: \<*\>
Leave the Replace With box empty.
Click on Replace All.
