If this is just something you need to do in code, then you can use the Replace function.

strText = Replace(strText as string, strToFind, strToReplaceWith)

i might have phrased my question wrong...its not a "string" of text..i need a macro which finds one word which appears frequently in the presntation, and replace it with different word.  
thanks
