Angry Words joined - how do i split?

i have some large text files i used for formating to csv file format, but there are quite a lot of words that have become joined (examples - Plug Type: straightLight weight and fashionable designFeatured with two parts:-3.5mm earphones).

word does try to autocorrect this by separating the words with a space, but is there anyway that i can format these joined words with a full stop followed by a space ( example as above corrected - Plug Type: straight. Light weight and fashionable design. Featured with two parts:-3.5mm earphones).



any help would be appreciated, as i need to autocorrect multiple occurences of this type of word joining, on over 10,000 product descriptions.

regards
mark

orry, but you won't find it in this page.

I have tried again to find the search wildcard for 'spelling mistake' (i.e. red wavy line, but cannot.

I have passed it on to somebody else, but no promises that they will be able to find the answer.

Good luck!
