Access - problem with text delimiter

We have a flat database with 3000 records. A memo field has data imported from a csv file. Although the original does not show them the access field has added flying commas around most of the field entries. They seem to be where the item includes a comma in the text. ( which is why I suspect delimiters!)
Problem - we do not want them to print in the final report. Easy - just replace each pair with nothing. But:
Edit - search and replace cannot find them! Just says item not found!

Any ideas?
