I have a document in word with many ‘ (single characters in MS Word)

The Find/Replace of MS Word is not able to replace them to ' (single characters acceptable in SSMS, these are ' recognized in SQL code, they are short straight lines and do not have bend at the end. This character exist in word because when I copy one from SSMS and paste it one in Word one at a time it works fine but that is too tedious).

Question: How can I replace ‘ (single characters in MS Word) them to ' (single characters acceptable in SSMS)?

If I copy and past doc file elsewhere to find and replace, if will loose many Word specific formatting.

e.g.
2007: Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
OR
2010: Click File, then click Options

Click Proofing, and then click AutoCorrect Options, then:

Click the AutoFormat As You Type tab, under Replace as you type, clear the "Straight quotes" with “smart quotes” check box.
