in reply to find acronyms in a text

You say you're dealing with a Word document. Word docs are binary files, but you are treating this as a plain text file. That could potentially cause all sorts of problems.

    Thanks a lot

    I have taken into account your remark and copied the contents of the doc word into a text word but it does not work yet

    update: it works now thanks to the remark of rmflow
      Use antiword to convert doc to text
