    Removing Uppercase phrases longer then 3 letters.

    I need to remove uppercase phrases from my text where the phrase contains more than 3 characters. The macro would search through and delete such instances.

    For example it would find the phrases

    HELLO
    OPEN
    MUSIC BEGINS
    MUSIC STARTS
    AUDIENCE APPLAUD

    and delete them.

    It would ignore

    ABC
    TOE
    RED

    and so on.

    Can someone suggest some Word VBA code to satisfy this?

    Grateful for any advice
