Hi!

Here is what I wanna do:

Have a couple document.. and giving the choice to the user of my program to send it to a customer.

Each document will containt some anchor (For Name, Address, phone, fax) but won't necessaraly contain them all..

So my question.. is :  is it possible to loop through all possible anchor and set only those found?

If yes, how?
if no, what other alternative should I look for?

how about using the find and replace for every anchor? or possibly have all the anchors in an array of strings and loop through the array setting the find string as the anchor to find?. ie

for intcount=0 to arraycount-1

If find <> "" Then
 myWordApp.Selection.find.ClearFormatting
    myWordApp.Selection.find.Replacement.ClearFormatting
    With myWordApp.Selection.find
        .Text = find
        .Replacement.Text = repl
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    myWordApp.Selection.find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
endif

next intcount

obviously youll need to set the replace string somewhere though?(repl)
