      How to find and replace a hyphen

      Post

           I would like to remove the hyphen from a number like this:

      978-0450008252

      When I do a find for the whole number "978-0450008252" it returns the record with this number. But when I copy the hyphen from this number and then paste and do a find for the hyphen only it returns no records even though many of my records contain the hyphen. I'm aware that this may not be a hyphen and some other character. But surely if I copy and paste the item into the search that it would return all the records containing the hyphen or whatever it is.
