When what you need to do in Word is to find some text and then add extra text to it there’s a smarter way to do this. In Word choose Edit > Replace and in the Find What box type the text that you want to find.

In the Replace With box type the text to add to the text that you’re searching for, but don’t retype the existing text. Instead, use ^& to refer to the text that you’re searching for. So, for example, to replace Los Angeles with Los Angeles, California search for Los Angeles and replace with ^&, California. It’s faster and smarter.
