Hi All,
I want to paste text next to a placeholder bookmark and make the bookmark enclose the text..

I am using the following code ...

objDocTemp.Bookmarks(objBookMark.Name).Range.Copy
bkName = objBookMark.Name
Set bkRange = objDocNew.Bookmarks(objBookMark.Name).Range
bkRange.PasteSpecial
bkRange.Collapse direction:=wdCollapseStart
objDocNew.Bookmarks.Add Name:=bkName, Range:=bkRange

But this code copies the text and inserts the bookmark after it.


Can anybody help me out.........

Thanks
Ramya

pos = bkRange.End - bkRange.Start
