    • Perhaps it's not highlighting, but character shading. Try using Format >

      Borders and Shading.

    • Thanks Jezebel,

      I have also tried this and while it removed som of the highlighitng, one

      section remains stubbornly resistant to removal. It does not seem to respnd

      to any of teh usual moves.

    • There's highlighting, there's character shading, and - if the text is in a

      cell, frame, or textbox - there's the shading applied to the container. Or

      you might have a shaded rectangle positioned under the text.

      If all else fails, select the shaded stuff, cut, and pastespecial as

      unformatted text.

    • Another possibility is some sort of markup, such as the highlighting for a

      comment.

    • And it could be a Field and the Always show Field Shading is set under Tools

      Options View.

      Hope this helps.

    • Thanks,

      the cut and repaste as unformated text worked fine. Problem solved.
