Need Macro for MS Word to Remove Tabs

I have a 2500 page Word document with short paragraphs of (+/-) 1-4 sentences each.
I believe 100% of the paragraphs are separated by a line space.
I believe 99% of the paragraphs are indented (i.e., someone hit tab).
I need a macro to remove the tab indentation, but not crash or choke if the paragraph does not have a line space (or if there is more than one line space).
The final product should have each paragraph separated by a line space, but with no tab/indent. That will allow me to bring select snippets of it into MS PowerPoint without issue.
Thank you.

It sounds like all you need to do is run a find/replace on the tab character. This will  leave your line spacing.

Find:  ^9
Leave the replace with field blank.

Ok, awesome! That left a space.
It looks like it has a single space, and then a tab.
How can I remove the space also?

Enter space followed by ^9 so you only have threee characters
