Default Find and Replace

I have a 115 page document which I need to change USA to United State of
America. When I do find USA and replace with United States of America it
replaces USA with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, all in caps. I tried to use the
formatting options for the replace feature but I still get the results in all
caps. Any ideas?

I am running Word 2003 with SP 2.

Thanks,
Mike

Default Find and Replace

In the Find and Replace dialog, click on the More button, and check the
boxes for "Match case" and "Find whole words only". In the Replace With
box, type United States of America, not UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and
not United State of America.
