Word might be good for certain things, however processing text is not one of them. I suggest you have a look at http://www.cygwin.com/. Cygwin is free and contains many usefull unix tools. To remove all "[" and "]" from a file, you could do something like:

    sed -e "s/\[//g" -e "s/\]//g" < junky.ddl > nifty.ddl

The syntax might look complicated at first sight, but once you get a grip of it you will wonder how on earth you even thought of starting Word to do things like that.
