Default find&replace word in uppercase with word in lowercase

Hello,

I am using word 2007 and i have come to the following situation:



I have tried to replace one uppercase word with another word, in lowercase. surprisingly the result is shown in uppercase. i could not find any option in the find & replace dialog box to show the result in lowercase. is this possible from the find & replace operation?

Thank you,
Andrei

Hi Andrei
You need to make sure the "Match Case" box is ticked and you should find it works okay.
Good luck.

Thank you, Tony.

I should have thought about this option, not only in tht "find" way, but also in "replace" way. I am furious with myself

Regards,
Andrei

Don't beat yourself up. Even the best if us forget the basics sometimes, including me.
