Can WIld Card be used in a Find/Replace?

I need to set a $$Var to Get ( ActiveSelectionStart )& " to "&Get ( ActiveSelectionStart )+(Get ( ActiveSelectionSize )-1) after a search in which I need to use "any one character" (@) as wild card. I noticed that while Find/Replace selects the found string in the string, a regular Find, where I can use wildcards, does not. Is there a way to use a wildcard with Find/Replace?

I have worked around this using a custom function to get the positions, however using a find replace would be easier and more accurate.

Thanks in advance for your help.
