Specs: Windows 7
I am using the find and replace feature in Word. When replacing 'DSM' with 'Drill Site Manager' each time there is a replacement the words 'Drill Site Manager' are replaced in all caps. Why? How can I correct? At first I tried Ctrl Shift A, with no results.

✔ Best Answer

In the find and replace dialog box, make sure that the 'Match case' check box is cleared. I don't have Word 2007 on this PC, but I think that the dialog box is similar. Look under 'More' for additional find/replace options.

Click the More button in the replace dialog
and check match case
This will then take the find and replace strings literally.

Humar, you got here first......:-(

Thank you both. This did correct the issue. I am not sure how that option became unchecked, but this did resolve my issue. :)
