Hello,

Is there any way to search in Word 2013 for an exact phrase?
If I have a document containing "Room 100, Room 101 and Room 10", how do I search for "Room 10" so my result would be ONLY "Room 10", without the other words containing it (Room 100, 101)

Thank you in advance,
Cristina

Give this page a try: https://www.gcflearnfree.org/word2013/text-basics/3/

The options section of the search function has options like 'match case' or 'find whole words only' which should be able to help you narrow down the search in your document.

In the Find and Replace window via the Find tab:

I got the find to work by using Room 10 in the "Find what:" box along with Match prefix and Match Suffix boxes checked.

No quotes around Room 10. (The quotes being what would normally be expected to work.....)

Search Options: Search at Down, no other boxes checked.

Also had Reading Highlight at Hightlight All.
