Thanks for the responce however it does not work.  Nothing gets change 
probably becasue no directions columns are  ='#' there are just a lot of 
them with '#' in the field among many characters.  If it did change 
something I fear it would change all of the text in the columns to 'No.' 
which would send me into a rage.  If I am missing something please let 
me know.  And if anyone else might know how I can solve this dilema, I 
would appreciate the input.
