    Yeah, I refer to the guide here and just hit Ctrl F

    Inputted <[0-9]{1,4}

    You can look at the screen shot here.

    I suspect there's is a special character at the end of the page number.

    Without placing too fine a point on it:
    1. Your find expression is not what I posted.
    2. There is no evidence from your pic that you're doing anything more than a Find (Ctrl-F is for Find, Ctrl-H is for Find&Replace) - there is no 'Replace' expression visible; and
    3. There is no evidence from your pic that you've set the 'use wildcards' option.

    You can't realistically expect to get a meaningful result if you ignore the advice you've been given.

    Macropod,

    Thanks for pointing out. Your Find/Replace works !

    I just clicked on the "Use Wildcards". Silly me, I coded the expression and found nothing. Not sure what's wrong. It is just the option settings. No wonder, I input all the regular expression and it just don't work.

    Sorry, I am just a newbie in MS Word and I appreciate your feedback a lot.
    I learn a valuable lesson here. Thanks again.

    Let me add another post here so that it can be useful to others as well ..

    Here are the interpretation for ^13 and ^p.

    Code:

    I started the wrong direction, but now, I'll grab a copy of Microsoft Words to explore in details. I don't want to remove the line number one by one for over 300 pages.
