"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So long as there are no carriage returns in your paragraph, you should just be able to use this
.* Apple .*

I'm sorry.  I couldn't get either one of those to work.  Am I doing something wrong?  I just copied that into the find in word with the wildcard option checked.  It did not return anything.

Are you sure the regular expression option is enabled? (do they mean reg exp when they say wild card?)

Regular expression option?  Is this a actual option in WORD or do you just mean having the use wild card option.  Which I do.
Word does not support regular expression matching AFAIK.
