I'm searching for a microsoft word document, but am having problems.  If I pull up "Tale" it gives me everything with "TALEnt" "TALEnted" etc.  I JUST want word documents that has the word "TALE" in it.  I've tried *tale, *tale*, (tale), {tale}.  Any thoughts?

Hi,

 

Go to Find and Replace >> Find, press the button (More), and then check the checkbox of (Find whole words only) as the below screenshot.

Hope that helps

Hi, I guess you want to search in Windows, not in a Word document. Put " and a space, thus "tale " or " tale" Does that help? Kind regards Hans
