In the attached Word 2007 document, I'd like to replace paragraphs with commas.  I select Replace, then special and choose Paragraph Character.  Then comma as replacement item.  But nothing happens.  Any suggestions?

You can use find/replace, use More options and choose your special character from the Special drop down.

It's the Paragraph Mark you need to use, type ^p instead at Find What if you like.

Use the special option "Paragraph Mark" or type "^p" in the Find What box.

Follow up with the comma in the replace with box and it should work.

Hello brettr, may I ask why you close this question this way? I was the first to suggest that you use the Paragraph Mark instead of the Paragraph Character. That is the correct answer to your question, I don't think tobyweston's suggestion is worth half the points, I think no points at all...

I chose both because they were both correct.  EE doesn't have much of any guidelines for accepting solutions.

Hmm, IMHO you should choose the first correct answer. Or other people would get points for 'copying' answers, what if 3 other people gave the same answer? Would you please reconsider closing this question differently? Thank you.

I can't change the answer acceptance.  You should contact EE if you want it changed.
