Hi, 

I'm editing a bible text using MS Word 2010. I want to use Find and Replace to insert "the LORD" in numerous places. Word insists on capitalizing "the" every time, so I get "The LORD" instead. I turned off Auto-Correct and Grammar Check with no effect. How can I fix this?

Hi

in ms word, click on find and replace, click on More, scroll down to font, look at the different font settings.

Ms office is very good for Wild Cards to do complex find and replace, but if you eant to do a basic find and replace try ....

Another option is to work from Tool Tip Tool NT, it also has find and replace, Find = the LORD
replace = the Lord, it will do the job. Very easy.

Thanks

LORD with caps is a translation of JHVH

Make first a backup.

 

If you want to replace the Sacred Name then need you also to turn on "Match case" for the caps

But if you want to "replace all" "the LORD" and "The LORD"  to JHVH then need you only "Match case"and "replace all"

LORD to JHVH

then replace all

the JHVH to JHVH

and

The JHVH to JHVH

 

Deu 32:6 is the only verse with "The JHVH"

The fix is to select the "Match Case" box. I thought it only applied to the Find entry, but it applies to the Replace as well. Thanks for the help!
