Hi  jessnjeff,

You can use "Do while .... loop" to achieve this, here is a snippet for the same. Let's say, you wish to find "jessnjeff":

========================================================================

Sub FindAllInstances()

Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory
  With Selection.Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .Replacement.ClearFormatting
    .Forward = True
    .Wrap = wdFindStop ' find till eof
    .MatchWildcards = False
    .Text = "jessnjeff"
    Do While .Execute = True
          MsgBox Selection.Text ' Will show text found in document (instances of jessnjeff one by one.)
    Loop
       
   End With
End Sub

========================================================================

Hope, this serves your purpose,

thanks,

GBahri
