Assuming I understand the problem... try including word delimiters in 
both the replaced and the replacing text:

   get the clickText
   put underscores(length(it)) into tChars -- func makes "__" string
   put space & it & space into tBad
   put space & tChars & space into tGood
   replace tBad with tGood in fld 1


function underscores pCount
   repeat (pCount)
     put "_" after tString
   end repeat
   return tString
end underscores
