    GREP search only does one line then goes back to top of story

    randiferous Level 1

      I have pages of tab separated text that needs to have paragraph returns inserted after a price to prepare the document for conversion to excel. I have put the following expression into InDesign CS4 Find/Change.  Find:  (\$(\d{2,3})[.](\d{2}))\t  Change: $1\r  . I want InDesign to find all instances of a literal dollar sign, followed by either a 2 or 3 digit number, followed by a decimal point, followed by a 2 digit number, followed by a tab. I simply want to replace the tab with a paragraph return. It finds the number, but when I click find next, it jumps back to the top of the document and tells me the search is complete. I tried turning off and on the single and multi line settings, but that doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions anyone?
