Another question about importing files into Frame 7...

I just imported a Word file into Frame.

In Frame, I click inside an imported paragraph. In the lower-left corner of Frame, it shows the imported paragraph has a format override like this: *body

I want to tell Frame to do the following:

Take every paragraph in the document with this override--*body--and apply a certain paragraph format (which, BTW, is called Body) that already exists in Frame's Paragraph Catalog.

How do I do this?

I do NOT want to go through the document, find each paragraph with the override, and manually apply the existing paragraph format. I want to globally change all paragraphs with the override at once...
