Hi,

I hope I'm asking this in the right place but...


How do I create a macro in MS Word to add Text.Write(" to the beginning and "); to the end of each line within my document?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I've managed to create a macro of the first line in my document of what I want to do:

Sub MyFileWrite()
'
' MyFileWrite Macro
' Macro recorded 18/06/02 by Kevin Abbott
'
    Selection.TypeText Text:="MyFile.Write("""
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine
    Selection.TypeText Text:=""");"
End Sub

How do I loop the above code so that it does this through-out the document which it is run on?

Thanks in advance.

'-- Assuming there are 100 lines in  the document.
Dim iLoop as Integer
For iLoop = 0 to 100
   Selection.TypeText Text:="MyFile.Write("""
   Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine
   Selection.TypeText Text:=""");"
Next
End Sub
