I wish to delete word in specific line in Word doc

There are plenty of macros for finding and deleting lines but I wish to go in my Word doc to a specific line (that will always start with "JA:" and delete all full-stops in that line, and repeat until all full-stops in all lines starting with "JA:" have been deleted. Thanks!

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


pls try
Sub macro()

For Idx = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.Count To 1 Step -1
    Set Prg = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(Idx)
    If Prg.Range.Text Like "JA:*" Then
        Prg.Range.Text = Replace(Prg.Range.Text, ".", "")
    End If
End Sub
