Default Find/Replace with Carriage Return

I'm new to working with Word documents so need some basic help please. When
using the Find/Replace feature is it possible to replace with a Carriage
Return or TAB space and if so can these be associated with characters as well
in the same replace action, eg: find letter Z then replace with CR + Z or
TAB + Z.

Thanks for your help
Ian.

Default Find/Replace with Carriage Return

Hi Ian

^p will find or replace with a paragraph mark. ^t is a tab. For a list of
the rest, in the find and replace dialog box, click More and then Special.

Depending on what you're doing, the following might help:

Hope this helps.

Default Find/Replace with Carriage Return

G'Day Ian,

Unless you really _mean_ it, it is not a good idea to talk about CR - this
was an ASCII (13) character used with text terminals, and still meaningful
to programmers.

Do you mean a Paragraph Marker (the character that displays as "" in Word)?

In Find/Replace, click "More" and "Special" to see a list of special characters
that you may search for/replace with.

For example the:
2-character string "^p" represents a Paragraph Marker
"^t" TAB
"^l" Line break ...
