I would like to clear the contents of a the active document via macro function. I cannot find a command such as "activedocument.clear" or something like this. What is available for me?

Try this macro (assuming you have the active document selected).

Sub MAIN
EditSelectAll
EditClear
End Sub

The 'editselectall' function does not work when I use it in a subroutine. I selected my text using the activedoc.range parameters. I cannot find any references to 'editselectall' or 'editclear' in the docummentation.

Also, I don't have to necessarily run this form a macro. It can be executed from a subroutine on a userform if this makes a difference.

What version of Word are you using?  
EditSelectAll and EditClear are both WordBasic commands in Word 7.0.
