Word 2004 Mac help?

According to the Help file, and various online resources, in Word 2004 for Macintosh, using the Find and Replace dialog box with "Use wildcards" turned on, I should be able to search on ^13 to find return characters. (These would normally be ^p, but wildcards doesn't recognize that code.)

However, while ^12 finds section breaks as documented, searching on ^13 gives me an error which reads:

"The Find What text contains a Pattern Match expression which is not valid."

Unless I am being deeply stupid, this is clearly not consistent with the Help file or available online documentation. Searching Google for "^13" is useless. Does anyone have specific knowledge of this error and how to work around it?
