or

Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = "rt"
        .Replacement.Text = "cb"
        .Forward = True
        'wdFinContinue will replace all
        'wdFindAsk will ask at each found
        'wdFindStop will stop after the first replacement
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .MatchWholeWord = True
    End With
    Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
