I have a macro that saves the range of a bookmark, but I want to keep the formatting of the text in the bookmark also.  How can I do that?

Here is some code I use:

Set Rng1 = ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("SerialNumber").Range

    Rng1.Delete
    Rng1.Text = SerialNumber

SO, you can see that I am trying replace the SerialNumber in the range.  I have formatted the bookmark, but it appears that also gets deleted and the default formatting is used.

Thanks

Create your own macro with the formatting you want, and then incorporate this text into your routine.

To record a macro to conditionally format:

Open up a document with your Bookmark, Tools, Macro, Record New Macro, give it a name, and conditionally format yourbookmark .  Stop recording.
