Highlighting found words in Word 2007



I use the find all and highlight function a lot for an ongoing project I'm
working on and we're switching to Word 2007 and I can't seem to find the same
function. I find all and highlight the word entries, but I can't make the
highlighting stick like it does in 2003. Any suggestions?

You can use the Replace tab of the Find and Replace dialog box to actually
apply highlighting to the word you searched for. Click More to see all
options in the dialog box. In "Find what," type the word that you want to
find. Type ^& in the "Replace with" box. With the insertion point still in
the "Replace with" box, click the Format button, and select Highlight. Click
Replace All.
