Sending Info from VB/VBA to MSWord

I have looked but not found too much good info on VB/VBA interface with MS Office products. This is what I am trying to do: I have a word document that has bookmarks for the fields that I want to populate. I want to populate these bookmarks but with some of the fields in barcode and some in human readable fonts. Than I want to print this out. It would be better if it did not have to be visible. Thanks in advance. This is a hard question for me so it is a 200 pointer.

I'm not exactly sure of the question, but the standard solution is to turn on the macro record, perform the function manually, then turn off the recorded.  You will then have a function to perform the manual process automatically.

Sometimes the macro needs modifying so that you can perform some enhanced function.  This is where the VBA knowledge becomes important, but most of what you need is not how to use Word, but how to use Visual Basic.

Maybe a little more specific information from me would be helpful. I am using the Word object in the References and have been able to open an instance of word from my VB code. I have also been able to move information from the code to the word object using bookmarks in the word document that I am calling through code. The problem I am having is setting the fonts for the individual bookmarks. I need to see an example of the syntax of the code that will set the font for the individual bookmarks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Unless I'm missing your definition of bookmark, I don't think Word bookmarks have fonts; they are merely reference points with names.

However, if you have Word, I'd open it and try to reproduce everything in VBA first, then copy/paste the code into VB.  This would allow you to record whatever you want and end up with valid code to be copied.

Well, if I can't manipulate the bookmark font, can I manipulate something else? A Range maybe? I just want to make sure that the information that I am putting into the Word Document is going to come out the way I want it. I know that there is a Font property in the Object model, I just don't know if is going to apply to the whole document or to a specific sentence, paragraph or if possible, a bookmark.

As far as I know, the font properties are attached to the individual characters.  You apply it to one or more characters by using the "selection" object.

Do you have Word?  If so, jump into there, create a macro where you set the font of a single or multiple characters, and look at the VBA code so you can see how it looks/works.
