In Microsoft Office Word, no matter how long your document is, searching and replacing a particular word is easy using the “Find and Replace” feature. To do this, just finish composing your document. When everything is finished, press CTRL + F to bring up the search dialog. In the “Find and Replace” dialog, go to “Replace” tab and enter the search details.

In the “Find what” field, enter the word or incorrect word to search. In the “Replace with” field, enter the correct word or the correct spelling of the word then click “Find Next” to find the next instance of the word. Once a match is found, click either “Replace” or “Replace All”.

When you select “Replace”, you will only replace the current match and you have to click “Find Next” again to continue searching for matches. If you select “Replace All”, all instances of the matching word will be replaced at once.
