How can I search all e-mail messages looking for the words "lesson?No"?

I want to search all my e-mails to find which students answered "No" to the question "Have you completed the lesson?"

Note:  The word "No" will always appear on the line below the question.

Here is what the student see's, and his response (Yes or No) is what I see on the following line.

Question:  Have you completed the lesson?

FYI:  I have included an image of what the formatting marks look like in Microsoft Word, if that helps.  See image below:

I tried following the "guide" you mentioned, (which by the way, is very interesting) however I was not able to find what I am need in order to search on "multiple" lines.

Here is what the search term looks like in WordPerfect, and works very well:

It is:  ?[HRt]No

In Word 2010, I tried just to find the manual line breaks, and it cannot even find them.

Though it did not solve my particular problem, the website www.addictivetips.com did provide further insight as to how to search for things.
