    InDesign CS6 — Grep to target first tab character only

    soundman1963 Level 1

      I'm working on a 6 page document that has 7 categories contact information that are separated by a tab character ». Each line is its own paragraph. I need to use GREP to target the first tab, after the beginning of the paragraph and convert it to a space character using Find/Change. It has to leave all other tabs on the line untouched.

       

      Currently, each line looks like the one below. The highlighted tab character needs to be targeted.

      Once the tab is targeted, it needs to be replaced with a space character:
