Hmm.  I only did the quickest test so didn't encounter finding all those 
other spaces.  Does seem like \f has no effect.

However, you might be able to work with ' $' (space, dollar sign) with 
wildcards turned on.  That finds a space at the end of a paragraph or 
cell (not the end of a line, as the Help says) -- also throughout the 
whole doc., not just tables.  Depending on your document, it could help...
