Hmmm, please don't tell me this has stumped the vast knowledge of the PC Advisor forum as well.... I don't believe it..!
This may be well off the mark but... is it possible that the find function is using up a memory cache of some sort? The reason I ask is that it works fine for say 25 consecutive requests and re-booting the PC seems to clear it? Simply closing and restarting Word doesn't.
A bit of background. We are sent a word doc on a regular basis, the 4 digit numbers appear randomly in the document (4 or 5 page document) and are amongst text, we have to find these numbers and cross them off against a spreadsheet.
You can imagine, without the Find function this can be a real painstaking job for someone...
