Hello,
Does any one know how to delete numbers inside curly brackets using Wildcards or Find/Replace in Word?
That is, this text {00102}1b. {00103} needs to be 1b. This came after exporting a file from DVX as a two column bilingual RTF document (per request), but I need to delete the formatting tags. It's a large file so doing it manually will take forever.

TIA!!
Cristina

Replace \{*\} with nothing using wildcards Mar 20, 2014

Replace \{*\} with nothing using wildcards.

That should do the trick.

Or this one, that only deletes numbers:

Replace \{[0-9]@\} with nothing using wildcards.

Cheers,
Gerard

Try this Mar 20, 2014

Replace any sign (^?) with nothing
And replace any digit (^#) with nothing

So press Ctrl+H and replace ^?^#^#^#^#^#^? with nothing.

HIH
