Removing a reoccurring string of characters (Mr., & Mrs..) from my contact field

I am running ACT Pro 2011! I would like to remove a remove a reoccurring string of characters (Mr., & Mrs..) from my contact field. How do I do this with out deleting all of the information in the field? These characters are always in the beginning of the field. I have a database of about 5700 records, of which about 800 start with Mr.or Mrs. Is their a global search and delete method to do this??

Not in the ACT! program, you would need a third party utility, Check www.actaddons.com for swiss army knife. I believe that's the name of such a utility.
