Search Plugin for Microsoft Word

Resolved Question:

I'm looking for a plugin or similar for Microsoft Word which will offer an improved "find" which will let me do boolean searches, proximity searches etc.

This is to operate within an open document, not search closed documents.

Hi

There isn't any need for a plug in -- Office already has a robust listing of search expressions - see below:

Here's a list of expressions about 2/3rd's down the page:
