Cannot Edit Search Nonbreaking Hyphen Within Spanish Word

Last reviewed: July 30, 1997
Article ID: Q100948



The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, Spanish localized version, version 2.0 (equivalent to the United States version 2.0a)

SUMMARY

In the Spanish localized version of Word for Windows, if you search for the nonbreaking hyphen character (CTRL+SHIFT+HYPHEN) using the "^~" special character combination, the following message appears:

   The Search Text is not found.

MORE INFORMATION

According to online help, you can search for the nonbreaking hyphen character by typing "^~" (without the quotation marks) in the Find What box. This special character combination works in the United States version of Word but not in the Spanish localized version of Word.

Workaround

In the Find What box of the Edit Find or Edit Replace dialog box, type "^0030" (without the quotation marks) to search for the ANSI character code for the nonbreaking hyphen character.
