I am editing my word document and when I search to find something, for
example I would like to search for question marks and exclamation marks at
the same time.

Hi Cliff,

maybe you got problems with characters with special meaning,
like ! (not) and ? (any character).

Those have to be quoted.
Search for: [\!\?]
Click "More" if you see a button "More".
Check "Use Wildcards"
