Find and Replace text and change font help needed.

I am completely new to Scripting and I'm sure this is quite simple but I do not know where to start.

I have a FM template that is populated with "raw" text from a database.

Within the text are several characters (+, @, *, $, # and %).

I need to replace these characters with symbols from a different font e.g.:

Each instance of:

"+" to be replaced with Wingdings 2 font - Lowercase t

"@" to be replaced with Wingdings 2 font - Lowercase u

"*"  to be replaced with Wingdings font - Uppercase E   etc.


I would like to automate the process and believe a script would enable me to do this.


I have tried looking on the forum, but can not find anything suitable to help me (or I'm looking in the wrong place).


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
