WORD 2000 Search And Replace

I need either the correct syntax for the search and replace utility or macro code for following:

I want to find all instances where there is an asterisk "*" in the beginning of a line - then i want delete the ENTIRE line and the ending paragraph mark.

Hmm. A wildcard search should be possible: \**^13 , but it doesn't seem to work (in 2007, anyway).

This macro does, though
Sub Delstar()
    Dim para As Paragraph
    For Each para In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs
        If para.Range.Characters(1).Text = "*" Then
        End If
    Next para
End Sub
