Syntax Error in "Find"???

I have a Mathematica notebook I keep adding to that contains useful 
hints and kinks I've learned in Hard Knocks Tech -- it contains headers, 
text commentary, and sample Input cells showing things like how to print 
in bold, how to insert a page break, etc.  I can open it and search it 
while working on another notebook.

When I do this, however, the first time I invoke "Find" on this 
notebook, I invariably get the error message


      There was a syntax error on line 3 of the cell expression.
      The error was

         \`\"ToFileName[\"Directory\*"\"",\\*"\


(I think I copied that mess correctly -- be nice if one could Copy & 
Paste from an error dialog box).

After that, the Find command works just fine for searching through my 
notebook.
