Word 2003 : Macro Question

I would like to insert the path of an active document using this macro but the macro gives a compile error.
What could be causing the error ?
Sub Path()
Dim strThisDocument As String
strThisDocument = ActiveDocument.FullName
Selection.Font.Name = "Verdana"
Selection.TypeText Text: strThisDocument
End Sub

Hi itbabe,

You're missing the = after the : in the TypeText line:

Selection.TypeText Text:=strThisDocument

Similarly, you could just use:
Selection.TypeText Text:=ActiveDocument.FullName

You can also ignore "Text:=" in this case:
e.g.
Selection.TypeText ActiveDocument.FullName

thanks,
