I need to know how to write a loop that will execute until it reaches the End of the Document.  Something like the following: "Do while Not EOF".  If that is not possible I would like to know how to at least count the lines in the document?

Hi,

You can use the Word.wdWordDialog with the constant wdDialogToolsWordCount. This function will return your lines, paragraphs etc.

Hi,

This will step through the document one character at a time.....

Sub StepThrough()
    Dim a&
    For a = 0 To ActiveDocument.Characters.Count
        MsgBox ActiveDocument.Range(a, a + 1)
    Next
End Sub


Hope this helps

Thanks for the answer, but I was wanting to know how to count line by line or execute a command until the end of the file.  However, I do like the subroutine that you sent me.
