Open the full Search&Replace tool (Ctrl H) and enable "Regular expressions" under "other options." In "Find" write


and click "select all:" all the "2" after a CO will be selected. Alt Tab to go to the document and now you can apply the formatting to all those "2" either as direct formatting (Ctrl Shift B) or by applying a character style.
