Emne: [dba-Tech] Word Replace with wildcard

I've run into an interesting find/replace question and I can do it with two
searches, but I believe it can be done in one. I should know this, but for
the life of me, I can't get it right. Hoping for a bit of help.

Problem: Reader has a Word document with several three-digit numbers
beginning with 3. He wants to change the 3 to 5, leaving the other two
digits as is.
