How do I remove (replace with nothing) all parenthetical statements
(including the parentheses) in a Word document? None of these work: (*)
(?) [(*)] [(?)]

MS Word Doc >> How do I replace a parenthetical expression? Worked like a charm -- just a matter of learning to use backslash in front of

MS Word Doc >> How do I replace a parenthetical expression? Jezebel's reply (see previous) gave me simple example; Graham Mayor's reply
explained how and why. Thanks (to both).
