Dear Experts,

I need to translate a certain word macro. I heard it might be difficult.

I am an extreme new-bie for VB. I am suggested to use VBA. I dont know how VBA differs from VB.

I hope you might have suggestion for me in translating a certain word macro using VBA.

Thanks.

Word macros always use VBA, unless it was for Word 6 or earlier, which used Wordbasic.
VB6 and VBA code for Office 2000 are basically the same.

The environment is different so you have to get hold of the Word Objects to run the code for you.

I suggest that you set a reference (Project/References) to the Microsoft Word Object library, then

Dim wdAppl as Word.Application
Dim Doc as Word.Document
Set wdAppl as New Word.Application
Set Doc = wdAppl.Documents.Open("C:\myfolder\mydoc.doc")

Within Word the Application object is implicit and need not be stated. If it is the keyword Application is always used.

the equivalent of the last line could be

either
Set Doc = Application.Documents.Open("C:\myfolder\mydoc.doc")
or
Set Doc = Documents.Open("C:\myfolder\mydoc.doc")

It might  be an idea to post some of the code (or all if it isn't very long)
