I am trying to get Word to search for a string of characters that begin with
"IDHC_", select the entire string, and then make this string hidden. I have
tried to use the Word "beginning of word" specifier with no luck.

For example, I've used "<(IDHC_)" but Word selects only "IDHC_" and not the
remainder of the characters that follow in the string. I've tried inserting
an asterisk in various places in the search command, but nothing I have
tried selects the whole string.

Is it me or this this not possible using the Search and Replace dialog box?

Thanks in advance.
