Default How to insert symbols into Find and Replace Box in Word 2000 SR1

I have very lengthy document in Encoded Text format, with New Courier font. A symbol (small box-like) occurs throughout the document. It signifies quotation marks. When saved as a Word document the symbol remains. I want to change this symbol into New Courier quote marks. Since it occurs several thousand times in the document I do not wish to do it manually. I want to make the exchange automaticaly using Word's Find and Replace Function. However I find I cannot get the symbol into the Find box. I cannot copy from the text and then paste it into the box? Also the Insert Symbol function (either by clicking on Insert or using a Key code) will not put the symbol into the Find box. Help needed here.
