If the text is in a caption, yes.  The easiest way it to purchase Rick Fisher's "Find and Replace".  This is a great tool and about the best $40 I ever spent.

you have to do a search in the Record Source of your report..

sample query..

select * from TableOrQueryX where [fieldName] Like "* texttosearch *"

"TableOrQueryX" is the record Source of your report, could be a table or a query
